Hi all,

I'm curious about the ratio of developers to writers in your company and
roughly how many "pages" you produce. For example, in the article "Tech
Writers As Sales Reps" from Gordon Graham, he suggests 8 developers to 1
writer in a company that produces about 3000 pages; so about 1000 pages per
writer (personally, I think this ratio should be much lower). I'd like some
other feedback on how do you estimate your resource requirements.
