The numbers are somewhat noisy, but the trend over the last four years suggests that volunteers are not contributing as much as they once were.
There's a lower percentage, but are they actually fewer on an absolute scale -- either in number of individual contributors, lines changed or # of changesets? Or is it possible that because there are more companies contributing (e.g., mobile device manufacturers), that it's just the relative percentage that's going down, and the actual amount contributed by volunteers is remaining steady, or even growing?
