[Haskell-cafe] GHC devs

Random question of the day: How many developers are working on GHC?
I had always *assumed* that there was something like a hundred core
developers, with a much larger number of people casually testing and
occasionally submitting the odd patch or two.
However, I watched a video of a talk the other day (no, I don't remember
which one) and it made me reconsider this view. Somebody muttered
something like "GHC is really too big now for just 3 developers to
manage", which makes it sound as if there are only 3 active
developers... Surely that can't be correct. (There would never be any
releases, for one thing...)
Does anybody know anything concrete about this?
