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?

Dylan McCall's comment is easily the most interesting.


The whole article is pretty interesting.

Dave Neary (the guy who did the census) also chips in as a voice of sanity in the discussion:
