Subject Max metadata changes allowed

I am looking for some more info on this:

From a previous message:

Yup. If you have a database that's still under development and you're
hitting the limit regularly, you have no option but gbak and restore to
reset them.

What does a "metadata change" constitute? Any type of change? Table
dropping, table adding, index creation/removal etc. etc. Or is is the number
of transactions that involve changes to the database?

This would be very helpful for us to know.
