Diversity of the OpenSSO Community

I was looking at MarkMail today, specifically at September 2008's emails to users@opensso.dev.java.net, and it struck me how many were from folks outside Sun. In fact, looking at the Top 20 senders, only 10 are in the 'OpenSSO team' at Sun. Another 4 (shown highlighted in light yellow) are folks from elsewhere in Sun, with 6 of the Top 20 (highlighted in yellow) being participants from outside Sun.

1) Pat Patterson 27
2) Rohan Pinto 22
3) Dennis Seah 21
4) Aaron Sheffey 19
5) Shesh Kondi 17
6) Deepak Pasupunatla 13
7) David Goldsmith 12
8) John Domenichini 11
9) Robert Dale 11
10) Hua Cui 10
11) Dilli Dorai 9
12) Tim Reynolds 9
13) Damien Covey 8
14) Amit Snyderman 7
15) Nikolaos Giannopoulos 7
16) Sean Brydon 7
17) Ashok Anumandla 6
18) Ezra Simeloff 6
19) Florian Thiel 6
20) Qingwen Cheng 6

Intrigued, I looked at the Top 20 senders since OpenSSO began, expecting to see far fewer 'external' senders over the long run, but was very pleasantly surprised to see just as many there:

1) Pat Patterson 288
2) Dennis Seah 271
3) Michael Teger 125
4) Sean Brydon 117
5) Hua Cui 116
6) Nikolaos Giannopoulos 103
7) Dilli Dorai 100
8) Hedrick, Brooke 86
9) David Holroyd 76
10) Milton Lima 72
11) Nebergall, Christopher 69
12) Subba Evani 63
13) David Goldsmith 61
14) Ping Luo 61
15) Tim Reynolds 59
16) Indira Thangasamy 57
17) Rajeev Angal 53
18) Shivaram Bhat 53
19) Robert Dale 49
20) Qingwen Cheng 46

One consequence of this diversity is that the pool of OpenSSO expertise is growing and we now have questions being asked and answered on the mailing list, by folks 'out there' in the wider community, while we in Santa Clara are all tucked up in bed. You know, I think there's some substance to this 'open source' thing...
