Studying Evolving Software Ecosystems based on Ecological Models [chapter]

Tom Mens, Maálick Claes, Philippe Grosjean, Alexander Serebrenik
2013 Evolving Software Systems  
In this chapter, we explore the differences and analogies between natural ecosystems and biological evolution on the one hand, and software ecosystems and software evolution on the other hand.  ...  The aim is to learn from research in ecology to advance the understanding of evolving software ecosystems.  ...  On the right, we do not observe an important decrease of variance of the 10 principal axes for the Gnome dataset.  ...

What make long term contributors: Willingness and opportunity in OSS community

Minghui Zhou, Audris Mockus
2012 2012 34th International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE)  
Using issue tracking data of Mozilla and Gnome, we find that the probability for a new joiner to become a Long Term Contributor (LTC) is associated with her willingness and environment.  ...  Our findings may provide a basis for empirical approaches to design a better community architecture and to improve the experience of contributors.  ...  Note, that both ecosystems have a browser and a mail client.

Open source software ecosystems: A Systematic mapping

Oscar Franco-Bedoya, David Ameller, Dolors Costal, Xavier Franch
2017 Information and Software Technology  
Objective: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the current state of the art in OSS ecosystems (OSSECOs) research, specifically: (a) what the most relevant definitions related to OSSECOs are; (b) what  ...  For this reason, SECOs appear as a valid instrument to analyze OSS systems. However, there are few studies that blend both topics together.  ...  Oscar Franco-Bedoya has a grant from Universidad Nacional de Colombia.  ...

Companies' Participation in OSS Development - An Empirical Study of OpenStack

Yuxia Zhang, Minghui Zhou, Audris Mockus, Zhi Jin
2019 IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering  
What is the nature of these novel arrangements? Does volunteers' participation remain critical for these ecosystems?  ...  To bridge the gap, we perform an exploratory study of OpenStack: a large OSS ecosystem with intense commercial participation.  ...  The resulting labeled dataset was then used to train a random forest model to predict author IDs for the remaining developers (see [26] for full detail).  ...

Niche as a Determinant of Word Fate in Online Groups

Eduardo G. Altmann, Janet B. Pierrehumbert, Adilson E. Motter, Enrico Scalas
2011 PLoS ONE  
Previous studies have already indicated that word frequency itself is a correlate of word success at historical time scales.  ...  Controlling for word frequency, we show that these aspects of the word niche are strong determinants of changes in word frequency.  ...  The curves are normalized by the maximum number of occurrences per window reached over all windows: 1,360 for gnome and 115 for lol (A); 2,510 for eminem and 56 for iirc (B).  ...
