It's difficult to measure.  Would you count a person that has one single
package and makes one change to it in a year?  Should I count managers,
documentation, QA etc.

Novell has an engineering force in our business unit that is responsible
for Linux of around 300 (I haven't counted them exactly) people.  Not
all worked full time on 10.3 and some are in the 1 patch group.

Lucas, I'm interested in the results - thanks!
