Gmane means the message comes from gmane, etc.al. It is the best guess by
looking into header field such as 'X-Gmane-NNTP-Posting-Host',
'Injection-Info', and 'NNTP-Posting-Host'. so there were 3327 messages
came from gmane.

assuming User-Agent string 'Loom' is the gmane web interface, there are
around 16%(14 of 85) gmane users post via web. However, only 2.5%
messages(82 of 3327) from gmane were posted via web. The news/mail user
count is not always accurate because user sometimes switched to other
ways of posting, so does the mua count.
There were only 3 messages with 'X-Nabble-From' header, they must from
Nabble. I didn't see any message from New Generation.
