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.

Harness launches Gitness, an open-source GitHub competitor
Gitness is a continuation of Drone: they incorporated it in one big PR .
Cynically, when coupled with the CTA to star on GitHub, it feels like they did it this way to preserve the star and fork counts.
I get that you feel that they're the same, and that makes sense since you founded both projects. But what is publicly visible communicates something very different.
For example, the press release entitled "Harness Releases Gitness" is clearly describing the release of a new Harness product, not a rebranding of Drone .
You also didn't merge in a branch that built Gitness on top of Drone. Instead there's one commit that removes every single line of Drone code  and then another one that adds all of Gitness . There's no continuity in the history between Drone and Gitness, Gitness effectively originates in one big "Initial commit" that just happens to be in the same GitHub repo as Drone used to be.
Two thirds of those stars were earned before Harness even acquired Drone, and it feels weird to me to see them used to push Harness's strategic move into Git hosting, even if that move is led by Drone's founder.
I hate to focus on this, but the website, https://gitness.com/, is absolutely horrible. Especially on mobile. The scrolljacking seems outright hostile and the entire site feels janky and broken. You don't need scrolljacking to provide a compelling or visually differentiated design experience.
Interestingly it looks like this is to a large extent a fork of Gitea (or at least, incorporates large amounts of code from Gitea): https://github.com/harness/gitness/pull/3364/files#diff-4673...
It's Apache-2.0 so I'm not sure what you're talking about: https://github.com/harness/gitness/blob/master/LICENSE.md
Looking at the forks list, it looks like they converted their old "drone" repo into the "gitness" repo:
So the stars all carried over.
So here's the GitHub project: https://github.com/harness/gitness
How does the project already have 27k stars? Surely this was not public before?
Or do you think drone always had this product?
So the only place I can find the last version of Drone is https://github.com/harness/gitness/tree/v2.20.0
You don't see how that's a bit ridiculous?
