Who contributed the most to open source in 2017? Let’s analyze GitHub’s data and find out.

This is of course missing all contributions to projects outside GitHub. I’m only familiar with Red Hat (my employer), but the two main projects I work on both have more “stars” than in your picture: QEMU (https://github.com/qemu/qemu) has 1464, Linux (https://github.com/torvalds/linux) has 52263. Both have mirrors on GitHub, but because development happens outside the GitHub walled garden they don’t show up in your stats.
