Presuming you're asking how many person*hours **of working group
members** is what you're asking, I'd say 25-50 sounds like a reasonable
estimate.  However, the vast majority of that time is spent reading,
understanding, and checking changes that others are proposing, and it's
very hard for one person to know how much time others spend on that.  If
you're asking how much time is spent by working group members writing or
proposing textual changes to the spec, I'd guess it's probably a median
of 1 hour per week and a mean of 10.  But I'm not one of the editors,
and they might be able to give a better answer.
