There are different factors, some of them are:

  1. It should have more feature request opened.
  2. Contributors should be active, it's not important there is daily commit but history will provide enough information that its active.
  3. Github stars will help you also to know about the popularity of the project.

  • I agree number of stars will encourage more contributors to join the projects, so it's really an effective factor to qualify a project.

  • Pull Request is only helpful if there's actually communication and colloborator to help that feature landed effectively on time, because in many cases, the implementer really needs helps from the community.
