Description

any way to know the total number of people who have CVS access?  A total might be 
OK here, if it's difficult to separate out non-netscape from netscape.com

as of today: 

There are 450 cvs accounts total.
There are 278 cvs accounts with addresses at netscape.com.

Netscape   Total
 450        278   accounts of any type
 375        235   accounts with access to source code
 164        261   accounts with access to the web site
  27         44   accounts with access to the web site, but not to source code.

sample query
select email, cvs_group, gila_group from users where gila_group="webmonkey" and
cvs_group="None" and email regexp "netscape.com";

note: people with cvs access may contribute to other mozilla.org projects
(e.g. bugzilla) but not to Mozilla.

note: Many people have contributed to mozilla as both employees and 
non-employees.  Some people (particularly interns) began contributing
to mozilla before they were hired at netscape and continue to use their
old email address instead of switching to their netscape.com address.

I found 5 non-netscape people who changed their cvs login to a to a
netscape.com address and 19 former netscape employees who changed changed
their cvs account to a new address after they left Netscape. There are many
other former netscape employees didn't change their address and whose cvs
accounts remain inactive. There's no easy way to count these.

I had some data in the wrong columns last time. Here's the corrected,
up to date version. (some people have been added in the last few days)

There are 450 cvs accounts total.
There are 278 cvs accounts with addresses at netscape.com.

Netscape   Total
 279        453   accounts of any type
 235        377   accounts with access to source code
 165        263   accounts with access to the web site
  28         45   accounts with access to the web site, but not to source code

Mitchell, still want this?

Would generating these be a good feature request for Despot?

Um, total number doesn't seem so critical now.  We do need a policy for
reviewing CVS accounts for those that have't had activity in a long time and
figuring out what if anything we should do about stale accounts, but that
doesn't seem to be this bug.

thanks for asking

Hmm, the existing miscstats.cgi appears to track this already.
