Jansson: On the Graying of GNOME

Hans Petter Jansson has done an analysis of contributions to the GNOME project, raising some concerns about how well the project is doing at bringing in new developers for the long haul. “According to this, GNOME peaked at slightly above 1,400 contributors in 2010 and went into decline with the GNOME 3.0 release the following year. However, 2020 saw the most contributors in a long time, even with preliminary data — there’s still two weeks to go. Who knows if it’s an anomaly or not. It’s been an atypical year across the board.
