Activity can be filtered only by the number of days, having two consequences:
- it can lead to huge memory consumption for high traffic repos (tried with the linux
- it can show nothing for abandoned repos unless you select a wide filter (say 180
days), leading to the first problem
Two alternative proposal:
== Filters by number of commits
It would be nice to have a view of the activity filtered by a maximum number of commits,
regardless of when they've occurred.
That will contain the first problem and solve the second
If you think the LOG view can be an answer, mind that log view is not cross repo.
== Limit the number of commits and add a "next page" link
Alternatively, limit the number of entries displayed in the activity view by a fixed
number, regardless of the selected time interval, and add a "next page" link to the
bottom of the page.

I can see that a commit limit on an extremely active repo would be useful for throttling
the Activity page. I'll probably add a setting for that - either global or per-repo,
not sure yet - for the upcoming release.
The Activity page was not meant to be a replacement for the Log pages and as such I
am not particularly interested in displaying repos that are not active by requiring
a minimum commit count. The Activity page was written for displaying "recent activity",
something like Trac's Timeline.
Revising the filtering is not something I intend to address for the next release, but
I wanted to give you some feedback so you didn't think your request fell on deaf ears.
