@GeorgLink : We could use a higher resolution image for the Elephant Factor graphic in risk metrics. We are using a Bitergia example and its a little low resolution.

A few clunky sentences:

For example, one common filter is to say the elephant factor is to say 50% of the commits are performed by n companies and that is the elephant factor.

A company evaluating open source software products might use an elephant factor to compare how dependent each projects is on a small set of corporate contributors.

Stackalytics[1] also implement this metric. Also, it is important if we can talk about join collaboration here. For example git has the co-authored-by trailer, etc.
