We are interested in the different dynamics of open source software projects with the overarching research question of "What makes these communities sustain themselves?". We especially try to find out more about the stakeholders of these communities and the resources these stakeholders contribute to the community they belong to. We are also interested in the structures among different stakeholders in the open source software projects. We would like to use SourceForge.net Data to understand the issues described above by looking at a range of open source projects.
