Just a graph in case this is helpful: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Very_active_editors,_January-July,_2013,_2014_and_2015.jpg

More graphs might help to further inform the conversation, such as graphs about VE edits.

By the way, is there an easy way to get info on from https://stats.wikimedia.org about editor activity levels that excludes bots?

It might also be nice to have tables on https://stats.wikimedia.org with VE editing statistics.

It would be interesting to have some coarse characterisation of edits to
see if any growth in edit count is spread uniformly against all
contribution types or if the growth is disproportionate some way

https://stats.wikimedia.org/EN/TablesWikipediaZZ.htm#editor_activity_levels is often a good proxy, because certain contributor types are dominated by certain kinds of contribution.
For instance 1+ editors are usually inexperienced and 2500+ editors are usually doing maintenance.
