A few years back, I saw a tool that allowed to see the volume of mails per OSM mailing list. it even allowed to filter by e-mail address and such. I can't seem to find any reference at all to it anymore; Anyone have an idea, or who to ask?

Not sure if this is what you're thinking about, but I might have mentioned a one-line shell script that I wrote once somewhere:

# listpeople.sh
lynx -width=1024 --dump "https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/${1}/${2}-${3}/date.html#start" | grep -i "\[.*${1}\]" | sed "s/.*  //" | sort | uniq -c | sort -n -r | head -20

So "listpeople.sh osmf-talk 2020 February" will show you what name posted how many messages to a particular list in a particular month.

I wrote that for a giggle after someone noticed the same names cropping up on the tagging list again and again and suggested that a bit of self-selection might be in order in some cases to let everyon's voice be heard.
