Funny one :-)

That's because those 2 are at the very core and are the only ones supposedly being paid fulltime for OS4 development (see how "100K euro per year
" is a usual salary for 2 contracted senior programmers in Germany?). If this meant they were the only ones, MorphOS would have no OS developers by that logic.
> So far, I have not seen anyone else make a credible claim that they were working on OS4.
Huh? Where have you been looking for these claims? Surely not on the official Hyperion blog or official Hyperion support forum (or Amigans.net).
"Alex Carmona and Lyle Hazelwood
"Thomas "imagodespira" Claus and Frank "Goos McGuile" Menzel
Those alone are 5 people. Other people claimed to be current OS4 developers from http://www.amigaos.net/content/11/credits include:
Hans de Ruiter
... essentially every Hyperion Support Forum member with "AmigaOS Core Developer" status
. I'm sure there're even more names from the AmigaOS credits page who claim or are claimed to be currently active in the OS4 project.
