I don't have any stats on it, but my guess is that, by and large, most
of wikipedia is made up of 1 or 2 line edits by millions of people.
The minority contributors are the ones actually creating entire pages
of content. Most pages start small, and then grow slowly by hundreds
of people making small corrective changes and additions.
