450 active developers (up to 2009) is "not that many"?

Many of those developers do not contribute to KDE SC, they work in other parts of the KDSs repositories like extragear, koffice/caligra, kdevelop, webdeveloper and translators. Others, while active produce very little code.

Really?

And regardless, 450 developers are not that many in the context of design, develop, test and debug 4-5 million lines of code from scratch in the few years since KDE 3.5. Which was the silly statement I was addressing.
