Mining in Free and Open Source Software
One of the non-deniable success factors of FOSS projects presents a community established around it. The FOSS communities present dynamic ecologies: the participants are free to come and leave and have a potential to assume different roles within a project. An appealing factor about FOSS analysis is that almost the whole project management takes place in Web resources. Also the code and its evolution history are freely available for mining within revision control systems. The data collected over years and even decades within communities with up to hundred thousands of participants present a great unplugged pool for investigations.
