Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The Area51 sidebar contains these useful tidbits during the commitment phase:

users also committed to, committers active in, committer roles roles stats

However, none of these are available in the definition phase. They should be! "Followers also committed to", "Followers also following", and activity/roles stats would be useful when discussing whether proposals should be merged, predicting what the user base and community will be like, and choosing which proposals to follow. Additionally, a "Committers following" statistic should be added to the commitment phase.

I understand that the roles are not known during the definition phase. I could easily see this being added (probably as an optional parameter) after clicking "Follow".
