AFAIK, unordered-containers has always been on github, so I don't see
how that can give any evidence that using git or being on github means a
project will "get many more contributions".

Unless you're comparing it to a different project (in which case the
different project goals, different set of users, different maintainer,
different level of activity by maintainer, etc, are all likely to be
more significant factors IMO).
