Bubulles blog inspired me, to do some statistics. Of course you can't just compare the total number of DDs per countries, since it's easier for larger country to recruit many than a small country. So I took the number of active Developers per Country (ldapsearch -x -H ldap://db.debian.org -b dc=debian,dc=org '(&(keyfingerprint=*)(gidnumber=800))' c|grep -c "c: $x" with x looping over the country codes) and the number of inhabitants (according to Wikipedia) and calculated the quotient of that.
The results are as following:
|State||Number of DDs||Population||Quotient|
So Bubulle, don't be that safe! There's only a small difference between the french and the Cambridge cabal! Oh, dear me... I just hope, there won't be a second Luxembourgian DD, or they will overtake us Germans!
Other interesting number: The USA only get on place 18 (even so they have the largest absolute number, they have even more inhabitants). The complete results are available at here.
Disclaimer: There are four DDs who had
fx as their country code,
which seems to be
France, Metropolitan, but I'm not sure how to
count them in.
