Is this talking about growth relative to the language's previous numbers? I wish this linked some more specific information on this data.
What I think would be more telling is to see some historical comparisons, i.e. how does Rust's current growth rate compare to other languages when they were Rust's current size? That way we could compare apples to apples.
