Isn't he a US citizen now. However large open source projects aren't the product of single countries. Developers are world-wide.

Amongst Linux distros there's SuSE which seems to have done the rounds: originally German, bought by Novell (US) then AttachMate (US), then MicroFocus (UK) then Blitz GmbH (German again) a subsidiary of EQT partners (head office Sweden).

Document Foundation (LibreOffice) and NextCloud are also based in Germany.
