    I remember systems programming on Minix... that was on a real, simplified, dumbed down OS - I daren't think how much extra you'd need to learn for Debian!

    At the moment we estimate that a little under 900 people hold the title Developer, following the great MIA purges of recent years; a further 100 people have upload rights on restricted packages through the Maintainers programme; then further countless people work on translations, documentation, package manicuring, and so on. It's impossible to get a reliable number on them since our barrier to entry or exit is low (you're not required to register in any way before contributing, you just send in your work and hope it's accepted by a Developer).
