If I had to guess, I'd say somewhere between 40 and 100, somewhere
around 20-50% of whom are MandrakeSoft employees.  Don't quote me on
that, however.  It's a much smaller developer community than Debian
(especially if the more unofficial developers (Texstar, etc.) who
operate outside the system aren't counted), so the average developer has
more to do, but those numbers are skewed by the full-timers (how many
packages does Fred Crozat, for instance, maintain?).

I may ask a Debian maintainer and LUG-mate for his opinions on these
matters the next time I get a chance.
