Fedora Maintainer Stats for Aug 9th

Fedora Development Branch:

Total Maintainers763
Red Hat Maintainers[1]278
Total Packages with at least one maintainer8639
Total Packages (including orphans)8858

2.7 times more external community maintainers than obvious red hat people. I think that ratio went up since last time I looked.

Now I know Fedora doesn't compete with Debian in the size of the number of packages, but how are we doing in terms of aggregate workload as expressed in the aggregate number of  packages per maintainer? Are we on par with them there? 

[1]Red Hat maintainer calculation uses the following heuristic:    
members of cla_redhat or email.endswith('') or bugzilla_email.endswith('')
