Gnome GNOME developer Dave Neary has posted the highlights of his work to determine where contributions to GNOME come from. This "Census" is a combination of data mining and surveys that gives a snapshot of gnome activity and the profile of a GNOME contributor. This project's aims were to answer three questions in particular: What does the developer community look like? What companies are investing in GNOME, and how? What does the commercial ecosystem around the GNOME project look like?

The largest number of volunteers, but they mostly deliver smaller patches, the big chunks are from company-employees who have been dedicated to the task. Also a lot of them were active volunteers before that.

RedHat writes a large part. Canonical, I'm sad to say, does not. Also sounds familiar.
