Abstract
  • Open Source software gives users the freedom to copy, modify and redistribute source code without legal entanglements. The evolution of these software communities usually depend a lot on how the participating developers and users interact and co-operate with each other. Over the past few years, open source software have become widely accepted and used, hence making the study of their organization and sustainability a very hot topic. To understand the working philosophy, health, and evolution of any open source project, one needs to look at a variety of factors like community interaction, strength of connections, recruiting and mortality, support and contribution patterns. Getting, sharing and analyzing Software Development metrics and information related to open source projects has thus become important, with many projects and companies looking to do so. The main challenge however is distilling large amounts of data into actionable intelligence. The main idea behind this work is to help communities and others understand contribution patterns in open source projects through the use of various visualization techniques.
