    Interesting article, its nice to be able to see who all the devs actually work for Isn't Hong Liu (0.08%) liuhong (0.03%) at Intel the same person?

    Another look at xorg anaylsis can be seen here

    Default No consideration of time in employer

    It would be very helpful if the scripts considered changes in employment over time, or ran for shorter time frames. Many of the largest contributors have worked/volunteered for numerous organizations over the years, so the grouping isn't as valuable as it could be.

    A couple other little nits: alphabetical sorting is not as useful as numerical, and having them in tables with names and numbers in separate columns would allow anyone to resort using something like the Firefox TableTools extensions. BTW, have you considered asking for LWN's scripts that do this?

    The article seems to miss the fact that Daniel Stone is a Debian Developer, and was active in the Debian X11 maintenance/packaging in the past.

    It's kinda interesting to see people expecting the same amount of development work from Ubuntu (backed by a private, unsustainable company) vs OpenSUSE (backed by Novell, a multi-million revenue company) and Fedora (backed by Redhat, same thing).

    I'm surprised how much Intel has put in to be honest.

    I wonder if X.Org would be better with more ATI / Nvidia support.

    Well it would be nice if nvidia would fix the nv driver so that it actually worked properly with all their cards.
