More on the GNOME Census and the Long Tail

I just read about Dave Neary’s presentation on the GNOME Census. Given the data, most of what I think is exactly what he wrote on the slides or the blog post. But there’s something I would like to stress, because we all take if for granted but we ought to keep telling to other people: the importance of the Long Tail.

Yes, more than 70% of the contributions come from paid work. But, if we consider voluntary as a company, that would be the most important company in the development of GNOME.

  3. I still don’t really get where the 70% come from? If I look at the “How do you participate in the GNOME project?” I see >70% participate in their spare time. It doesn’t show the exact numbers of the participants who participate professionally but looking at the chart I would say that it’s not more than 10%, 19.93% say both (professionally and spare time).

    So where all this people get the 70% paid/professional contribution?
