If I'm reading this correctly, you're quoting the Oracle developers as 
being contributors to LibreOffice?  That is not particularly useful for 
project planning purposes.  Perhaps the core count for Oracle is closer to 
the mark, if we extract only that out. 

In any case, the number I derived earlier (20 core developers) was not 
disputed by Charles.  It is consistent with what I know was required to 
develop Symphony.  And matches what was recently quoted in a Document 
Foundation Blog post, where it talked about "20 core developers working on 
features, fixes, and packaging the software":
