These people are "insiders" only to the extend that they have been
involved for a long time and care enough to know to these sort of
trivia. Other than that the information is transparently available in
many public places.   This is a open source project after all.

In addition to that, I don't prefer to talk about a "user base" since
there is no bright line diving contributors and users.  Anyone who
bothers enough to say report a bug should be considered a contributor.
