How Healthy Is My Project? Open Source Project Attributes as Indicators of Success [chapter]

James Piggot, Chintan Amrit
2013 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
We also determine the factors (according to one classifier) that uses only eight variables among all the variables available in SourceForge, that determine the health of an OSS project.  ...  Our model uses 8 Open Source project metrics to determine the stage a project is in.  ...  Research has found that the initial stage of an OSS project is indeed the most vulnerable time period as a project competes for legitimacy with other similar projects in attracting developers.  ...

OSMF: A Framework for OSS Process Measurement [chapter]

Wikan Danar Sunindyo, Fajar Juang Ekaputra
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we propose a measurement framework (OSMF) to enable the project managers to collect and analyze process data from OSS projects efficiently.  ...  Initial results show that OSMF can help project managers to manage OSS business processes more efficient, hence improve the decision on OSS project quality.  ...  These data will be analyzed for process model conformance checking with the Bugzilla life cycle.  ...

A Measurement Based Framework for Assessment of Usability-Centricness of Open Source Software Projects

Görkem Çetin, Mehmet Göktürk
2008 2008 IEEE International Conference on Signal Image Technology and Internet Based Systems  
Free and open source software (F/OSS) developers tend to build feature-centric projects rather than following a user centred design, ignoring the necessity of usability inside the resulting product, ever  ...  In order to increase the usability hence the competitiveness of open source software applications, developers need to measure their usability activities within the project, and to conduct appropriate user  ...  In a research, members of the joint Swedish/Danish UTOPIA project worked with Nordic Graphic Workers' Union to develop an application to aid workers in page layout for newspapers, in which UTOPIA researchers  ...

The Labor of Maintaining and Scaling Free and Open-Source Software Projects

R. Stuart Geiger, Dorothy Howard, Lilly Irani
2021 Proceedings of the ACM on Human-Computer Interaction  
We report findings from an interview-based study with contributors and maintainers working in a wide range of F/OSS projects.  ...  In understanding F/OSS to be as much about maintaining a communal project as it is maintaining software code, we discuss broadly applicable considerations for peer production communities and other socio-technical  ...  We are thankful to the cohort, advisors, and program managers of the Ford/Sloan Critical Digital Infrastructures Initiative in helping us plan this research.  ...

Two Rule-Based Natural Language Strategies for Requirements Discovery and Classification in Open Source Software Development Projects

Radu E. Vlas, William N. Robinson
2012 Journal of Management Information Systems  
In total, these contributions provide a path for subsequent empirical studies of OSS requirements and enable subsequent software tools for facilitating automation of requirements traceability analysis  ...  This single study is a design science part of a larger multiparadigm research project. Subsequently, the RCNL technology will be used to obtain data for empirical analysis of OSSD.  ...

Towards Mining Norms in Open Source Software Repositories [chapter]

Bastin Tony Roy Savarimuthu, Hoa Khanh Dam
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
On this basis, it lays out the main research questions and open challenges in mining norms from these repositories.  ...  Mining norms from open source projects however has not received much attention from the normative multi-agent system community.  ...  However, to the best of our knowledge, there has been no existing work in mining norms in OSS projects. OSS projects present an interesting context for norm mining for several reasons.  ...

An Empirical Study of Adoption of Software Testing in Open Source Projects

Pavneet Singh Kochhar, Tegawende F. Bissyande, David Lo, Lingxiao Jiang
2013 2013 13th International Conference on Quality Software  
The results show that projects with test cases are bigger in size and projects with bigger team sizes have higher number of test cases.  ...  In this study, we explore open source projects and investigate the correlation between the presence of test cases and various project development characteristics, including the number of lines of code,  ...  Together with test scripts, test cases are constructed to check whether a given software performs in conformance with its requirements.  ...

Identifying Coordination Problems in Software Development: Finding Mismatches between Software and Project Team Structures [article]

Chintan Amrit, Jos van Hillegersberg, Kuldeep Kumar
2012 arXiv   pre-print
In distributed project settings, "management by walking around" is no longer an option and project managers may miss out on key project insights.  ...  In this paper we report on our experience of using TESNA to identify STSCs in a corporate environment through the mining of software repositories.  ...  In this research we showed how we developed our method and tool from empirical data.  ...

Exploring Factors and Metrics to Select Open Source Software Components for Integration: An Empirical Study [article]

Xiaozhou Li and Sergio Moreschini and Zheying Zhang and Davide Taibi
2022 arXiv   pre-print
However, the selection of OSS projects for integration is not a simple process, mainly due to a of lack of clear selection models and lack of information from the OSS portals.  ...  Moreover, we investigated the APIs of the portals adopted to assess OSS extracting information for the most starred 100K projects in GitHub.  ...  Last, but not least, research in mining software repositories also evolved in parallel, and different researchers provided datasets of OSS projects, portals and tools to extract information from OSS projects  ...

Learning and Activity Patterns in OSS Communities and their Impact on Software Quality

Antonio Cerone
2013 Electronic Communications of the EASST  
It first describes how participants' activities enable and drive a learning process that occurs in individual participants as well as in the OSS project community as a whole.  ...  This paper presents a framework to identify and analyse learning and activity patterns that characterise participation and collaboration of individuals in Open Source Software (OSS) communities.  ...  Moreover, text mining can reveal the communication and collaboration antipatterns that exist in OSS projects.  ...
