Average weekly activity

It's amazing to see all that happens on GitHub over the course of a typical week. Each weekday there are over 20,000 issues, 50,000 comments, and 250,000 pushes on repositories maintained by contributors all over the world. Even though there are still over 125,000 pushes on an average weekend day, it seems like most GitHub users appreciate taking the weekend off.
