I have no idea how many network developers there are in the world but:
1) Many people may be installing this from pypi as a dependency of
some other application that they use. So you should think that it
counts something closer to "users" rather than developers.
2) There are problems with the download counts on PyPI but the numbers
above are sufficiently high that they should indicate a wide level of
usage of the libraries.
