Our research aims to investigate the economic behaviors of the participants in F/OSS development. Among others, the project will study the formation and evolution of F/OSS collaboration via social network analysis. We chose to study the F/OSS community at SourceForge because we believe that it is currently the best available representation of an active and thriving F/OSS collaboration community.
