Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Why does foreach on arrays and strings get lowered into a while loop that ignores IEnumerable, even though both classes implement it?

Honestly, I don't have a clue why these would be different. I found the relevant Roslyn code here. You can see on line 719 that this is definitely intentional:
.Net 6.0 - The new Program.cs "flat" style - too implicit/magic?

Why not use Roslyn Scripting…you can pretty much do any kind of dynamic evaluation with this and it does not require any reflection. https://github.com/dotnet/roslyn/blob/main/docs/wiki/Scripting-API-Samples.md you can add the support via a Nuget.
What’s the maximum number of arguments for method in C# and in .NET?

It was discussed at one point: https://github.com/dotnet/roslyn/issues/5058
What parsing techniques do you use to support a good language server?

It must be a fairly large echo chamber since it has room for Clang, GCC, V8, OpenJDK, Roslyn, etc. (The Zend parser for PHP seems to use some flavor of YACC, but given PHP, I don't know if that strengthens or weakens my point.)
Why is no-one using Roslyn token-based code generation with Source Generators?

I'm planning to rewrite all of our company's old T4-based codegen tools into Source Generators. I've been looking at how other Source Generators are implemented and what surprised me is that everyone seems to assemble the output code manually as text with string builders or at best some simple templating engine (eg. Scriban). I expected that I would see a lot of projects assembling their output code from Roslyn tokens and then using Roslyn's formatter to produce the actual code that can be emitted into the output file(s), like this article demonstrates. No-one seem to be doing that though. Why?5 projects | reddit.com/r/dotnet | 28 Feb 2022

Early peek at C# 11 features

Looking at the github history of the string holes feature, it looks like it was actually a simplification that had the side-benefit of generating a bloggable feature. There was a lot of code that existed solely to prevent holes inside string interpolation and the change was to remove that special casing. The core change to the parser is almost entirely deleting lines https://github.com/dotnet/roslyn/pull/56853/files
