Project Abstract

We believe that the statistics about open source phenomena might be very useful for our research, particularly data about participants (number, skills, job status), project history, ratings, number of downloads, etc. We wish to make an analysis on those statistical data, and hope that they might help us to find an answer concerning why some open source projects are successful, and other are not.
