Graphing OpenJDK Activity, Who's Fixing the Bugs?

Did you know how much activity is doing on in the OpenJDK project? We all know that it's rules and charter were changed to be more open, so I believe it would be easy to see how many people are working on it, how many commits are done, what sources are actively being worked on, who are the biggest contributors, etc...

Well, to my surprise I could not find much information. I could find only these 2 things:

1) There is a page called OpenJDK Quality Metrics that gives me more or less the kind of high level information I was looking for but the last update was in 2008!

2) There is the bug tracker but it is not very helpful. As you can see in the following image, it shows that the new bug reports pill in but are not worked on for the most part. This is a pretty sad view.

 

 

Did I miss anything? Do you know any other page where I can get metrics about the evolution of OpenJDK?
