Please note that Apache OpenOffice also has active developers who have
not yet been granted "committer" status, so the numbers are not
directly comparable. I don't know how many non-committer developers
there are at AOO. They submit patches which, if approved, are then
committed by someone with the relevant authority.
Most of these hidden developers are coming from IBM China, and they will
not get the committer status before graduation, as otherwise it would be
clear that AOO is a hidden IBM development project as the "diversity" of
the developer base is missing (IBM developers would be well over 80%,
while now they are around 40%).
What makes me nervous, is that all this is done with the complacent
supervision of ASF mentors, who perfectly know the situation and hide
the issue with statements about a "diverse" development project.
Anyway, as soon as AOO will graduate, we will know the number of these
hidden developers. What does not change is the number of commits.
We should stick with Ohloh figures, because they are independent from
both projects, and reflect the actual reality.
I would also avoid speculations on AOO hidden developers, because this
is their problem and not our problem.
