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.
