As in previous years, I've pulled together a few statistics on code contributions to PostgreSQL. See previous posts in this series for methodology and caveats. I calculate that, in 2022, there were 192 people who were the principal author of at least one PostgreSQL commit. 66% of the new lines of code were contributed by one of 14 people, and 90% of the new lines of code were contributed by one of 40 people. Here they are. Asterisks indicate non-committers.

Rejoice and be glad! I was so pleased this morning to see that Melanie Plageman's patch to make autovacuum absorb new cost limit settings more quickly was committed by Daniel Gustafsson while I was busy enjoying a long Easter weekend. It's a minor change in the grand scheme of things, but there's a reasonably common situation where it's going to make life a lot easier.
