With the release of GNOME 3.18 just around the corner, Emmanuele Bassi has shared some interesting statistics behind the development of the GTK+ 3.18 tool-kit as well as GLib.

Matthias Clasen continues being extremely prolific on GLib/GTK+ development while Benjamin Otte was the only other GTK+ development accounting for more than 10% of the changes. One of the more prolific unheard of names was Руслан Ижбулатов with his work on porting the code to Windows.

When it comes to a company look at contributions, Red Hat developers were responsible for 75.5% of the changes during GTK+ 3.18 and GLib 3.18 that accounted for 61.6% of the changed lines of code. Canonical, meanwhile, was responsible for 0.8% of the changes that accounted for 0.5% the lines of code.
