Default 27% of Firefox Patches Come from Volunteers

I thought this blog entry was particularly interesting. It would seem that more than 27% of the patches to Firefox were submitted by community volunteers. What makes this even more interesting is that only people that submitted more than 50 patches were counted, so the number could be a a lot higher

We looked for those developers who had submitted 50 or more patches to the source code for the six months before Fx2. Why the lower bound of 50? Initially, I was trying to find a list of the key contributors to our software whom I could email to see how or if Mozilla
