That's using their default Avg. Salary of $55,000/year. That's a joke,
at least here in US. Boost contributers are often highly experienced
world-class developers who would bring a great deal more than that on
the open market. Furthermore, overhead costs usually add something close
to 100% to cover benefits, office space, managers, etc. I'd use a figure
of at least $200,000/yr.
That would bring the value to $68,000,000:-)
