My impression is that we have been relatively stable over the last
few/several/many years.  Some old time regulars have dropped out, some
new people (including yourself) have replaced them.

No, I refer to doc strings more often, but I probably spend about the
same amount of time reading doc strings and the manuals.  With Emacs
being so extensive, I can't possibly hold the details of even what I use
every day in my head.  Heck, I even consult the CC Mode manual (which I
largely wrote) to help me adjust my CC Mode configuration.
