pdmtl is 147 people. In comparison, a few months ago, pd-list was 982 
people and pd-dev was 302 people (back then, pdmtl was about 135 people).

This is not proportional because large mailing-lists tend to be 
higher-volume and higher-volume lists tend to cause people to unsubscribe, 
so number of subscribers to public mailing-lists grows less than 
proportionally to the number of users of the software. Some lists (such as 
pdmtl) tend to be low-volume even when there are many people on it, and 
that's what might be keeping its subscriber count higher than it would 
otherwise be.
