Hi all

Apologies if this has been asked before (couldn't spot in any FAQs)...

Does anyone have any typical figures (however rough) for an approximate
desirable ratio of developers to writers? Our project is developing a Win95
GUI application with a swarm of Visual Basic programmers.

Any help you can offer will be useful ammo in convincing management that we
either need more writers or fewer deliverables.

Thanks for your help
