Magnet or Sticky? Measuring Project Characteristics from the Perspective of Developer Attraction and Retention

Kazuhiro Yamashita, Yasutaka Kamei, Shane McIntosh, Ahmed E. Hassan, Naoyasu Ubayashi
2016 Journal of Information Processing  
As OSS systems are becoming a type of infrastructure, long-term OSS projects are desired.  ...  To better understand how projects retain and attract contributors, our preliminary study aimed to measure the personnel attraction and retention of OSS projects using a pair of population migration metrics  ...  However, to our knowledge, no study has measured these characteristics using developer transitions. Therefore, in this study, we focus on the number of new and existing contributors in OSS projects.  ...
