OpenStack Essex Hall Of Fame

Today we can celebrate a new release of OpenStack: version 2012.1 codenamed Essex is the fifth since its first announcement in July 2010. Join me to thank the over 200 people from over 50 companies that gave us a new version of OpenStack. These numbers are amazing. Just as a comparison, Linux kernel version 2.6.11 had 398 developers from 68 companies when it was released in 2005 (about 14 years since its first release)!

And thank you to Bitergia, the spin-off of LibreSoft research group that provides us tools and expertise to mine community data and Mark Collier and Jonathan Bryce for filling in the gap left by the semi-automatic association between people and companies.
Note: the data above was extracted from git logs of the repositories of projects officially included in Essex release. A lot more people contributed code in incubated projects and other projects related to OpenStack.
