It's quite possible that over half of the developers aren't getting paid to work on Mozilla, but by necessity that will limit their time and contributions to the project because most of them still need to have real jobs (or school, etc). Certainly the vast majority of bug fixes are submitted by contributors who clearly _are_ being paid to work on it, which will naturally allow them to spend more time on the project. I don't see any contradiction here, I don't think rgelb thought this through very well. However his main point that most of the actual volume of contributions come from paid employees still stands.
