Actually quite a bit.

First, I contend that because someone may have mucked around with code,
that does *not* make them a developer.  Ask Paul Frields, current
Project Leader, former Project Board member.  He has mucked about with
code, but does not consider himself a developer.  I'm even more in that
camp.  I do *everything* in Fedora (practically) except develop code and
package software, the latter more from laziness and time factors.  (I'm
using myself as an example because I am a Board member and long time
leader in Docs, Marketing, etc.)

Also, in Fedora we tend to call people 'developers' who mainly package
code from other developers.  Many packagers are more system
administrators than developers, in their Fedora work or $dayjob.

Just clarifying that since it appears you are coming with a preset
conclusion about how Fedora is directed.
