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.
We haven't tracked posts mentioning NGit yet.

Gitversion: It reads your commit history and generates a semver version out of it. Say you are compiling main branch and have a tag 1.0. Then, you squash 3 PRs. When you build this version, the new version number will be 1.0.3. You can configure it to be smarter about increasing major, minor, patch fields. I typically use prefix on the commit messages so that it generates versions correctly. See more at https://gitversion.net/docs/

Managing Embedded SW revs?

Under Linux I use gitflow and gitversion. The former helps me with branch and tags management, the latter keep tracks of the semantic version in a semi-automatic fashion (given a branch/commit/tag it generate a semver automatically based on the repo log). Gitflow should be supported by GUI tools too, but I'm more a CLI guy.
Automating release notes with conventional commits

I know that GitVersion exists, which I think can automatically calculate the version number for me. But it's not entirely clear to me that it will do this. Also it doesn't seem to have a nbgv set-version equivalent that will just create a tag based on the calculated version number.

Kind of like you mention though, I tend to still create a build script using gitversion then just have the GitHub Action kick off the script. I find value in being able to create artifacts on a developer machine so having a simple script to run makes that as painless as possible and when I last looked a year or so ago there wasn't a good way of running GitHub Actions on your development machine.

Self promotion: I made Verlite for this purpose, tho something like GitVersion might be more suitable for your workflow.
