This metric is irrelevant.  Basically, you removed everyone who was a
prominent developer, so it's little wonder that you are left with a
small number.  Using such arbitrary criteria, one can "prove" anything
for any project.

Once again, the long history and the active development of GCC over
those long years are a clear evidence that your criterion is
completely off the mark.
