Yes, but when they started, they mainly rebuilt the upstream
(Debian) packages, right?

I'm not buying this number. It's too big. Compare to
Pardus, which also employs a number of paid developers,
it's more popular than ALT, and it still has less paid devs.
But maybe they are employing 150, what do I know...

And they still refuse to add even 10 or 20 packages to EL,
even as a "technology preview" (which is unsupported, AFAIR).
