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.

I think you are right about STM being roughly equivalent to snapshot isolation.
What STM offers is an easy way to invent "containers for snapshotted values" aka TVars. Using them carefully may result in better scaling: https://hackage.haskell.org/package/stm-containers

You mean, Haxl?  But AFAIK only a few devs are involved for the development.
Do You Know Where Haskell Is Used?

Probably, the most googled and well-known example of Haskell application in major companies is the Facebook Meta spam filters. Messages containing spam, links to potential malware and phishing attacks are filtered by Sigma, the system that was rewritten in Haskell in 2015. The choice of language was based, among other things, on performance requirements, the need for pure functions and static typing, as well as the possibility of interactive development. The Haxl framework is used under the bonnet, which the company has open-sourced. You can find more details about the development process and technical aspects in the company’s blog post.

An Ideal Data-Model-First Development Approach for the real-world apps

Since you mention Any real-world application uses a database or seventeen in the backend, it's probably worth checking out https://github.com/facebook/Haxl as its goal is to allow you to write high-level queries in Haskell and have the library call out to different datasources as efficiently as possible.
