This question intent to answer if Odoo is supported by an active community.
What are the indicators about how the community is active?
Number of contributors?
Number of commits?
As OpenERP's core code is accessible via Github, you can refer to the statistics on the project pages:
From this, you can see for example, that there has been about 2100 commits for these three projects in the last month. [2013-05-02]
You can also refer to the OpenERP community dashboard here to monitor the progression of merge proposals.
Ohloh also provides detailed activity statistics for broad periods of time, letting you see the general direction that the project is going:
Official project: https://www.ohloh.net/p/odoo
Community addons: https://www.ohloh.net/p/odoo-community-addons
You can see detailed historical search term popularity for OpenERP, with our competitors as a reference, here
OpenERP also has a vast number of partners around the world who contribute to the knowledge base, module collection and expansion of the software.
You can find a breakdown of partner availability by country here:
The list is growing - new partners have recently been recruited in Napal, Sri Lanka and Laos. Odoo has around 500 partners in 100 countries.
You can also get some interesting figures by the number of questions on Stack Overflow with the OpenERP tag. (For future readers, you will get a better idea by consulting the number of questions asked on this forum which tend to be 30 per day, this forced Odoo to develop their own Q&A web)
Graviting around Odoo, the numerous contributors tend to regroup them under an association named Odoo Community Association.
