I would say "some GNOME developers" or "many GNOME developers". [1]
I know that 'guh-nome' is the proper pronunciation, and I will tell
people so if asked directly.  But I just can't bring myself to say
it that way.

Maybe we should just eschew all traditional pronunciations and start
pronouncing GNOME as "Love".

[1] Actually, I would say "some Gnome developers", if my oration
skills somehow allowed me to convey the capitalization. :)
