From Linux Foundation: Linux Kernel Development - How Fast it is Going, Who is Doing It, What They are Doing...
This white paper from the Linux Foundation looks at how the kernel development process works, focusing on kernel history as represented by the 2.6.11 through 2.6.35 releases. This is the 2010 version of this paper, which was first published in April, 2008, and covered development through the 2.6.24 kernel. Since 2005, over 6100 individual developers from over 600 different companies have contributed to the kernel. The Linux kernel, thus, has become a common resource developed on a massive scale. The paper shows both individual and corporate contributors to the development process.
