+Not many. One handful work on it in their free time, and another two
+handful do help with [[Debian GNU/Hurd|hurd/running/debian]] and
+[[hurd/running/Arch_Hurd]] packaging. Also, an additional handful of
+former developers are still availble for answering technical questions,
+but are not really participating in the current development anymore.
+For reaching out to new developers, we're participating in [[Google's
+Summer of Code program|community/gsoc]]. Likewise, any interested party
+(*you*!) are very welcome to start [[contributing]]. Mentoring is
+possible, too, to help you get started.
