I'm not sure it's true that "most" are working on the core technology either. We're only talking about 8 or 9 full-time staff, and that includes the "overheads" of running the organisation and all the various build and code management stuff.

Firebird, for example, may be mostly one person, but if you include all the "overheads" that are necessary for that one person to be able to spend all their time on the Firebird front-end, we could be talking about 25% of the resources of the organisation. If you look at the credit box in Firebird, you will see that it lists a lot more than just one name.

It would be good if the Mozilla folks updated the staff list, so that it reflected who is actually doing what now.
