Well, Paul Adams (emeritus) and Kevin Ottens have been doing some kind of KDE-
contributor-metrics, finding central people, noticing networks of contributors, 
showing how the split into many git repo's has affected the social cohesion of 
the project, for about 10 years now.

So there is some existing work, although it's focused more on understanding 
what's going on, than on helping out with onboarding.
