<ProjectManagerMode>Can we make this an option?</ProjectManagerMode>

But seriously, I think the statistics are a tool for project management
(in a broader sense). And for project management, the typical question
is not "Where am I / is user XY in this list?" (alphabetical order) but
"Who is most / least active?" (sort by commit count).

All graphs should use the same order as in the legend. This is especially
important for diagrams with multiple bar plots. Also, it would be nice
to list the authors that are grouped to "others" in a tooltip followed
by their commit count in parantheses (but be aware that this may be
~1000 entries). For this list, alphabetical order might be better suited.
