End-users are often argued to be the source of innovation in Open Source Software (OSS). However, most of the existing empir- ical studies about OSS projects have been restricted to developer sub- communities only. In this paper, we address the question, if and under which conditions the requirements and ideas from end-users indeed in- fluence the development processes in OSS. We present an approach for automated requirements elicitation process discovery in OSS commu- nities. The empirical basis are three large-scale interdisciplinary OSS projects in Bioinformatics, focusing on communication in the mailing lists and source code histories over ten years. Our study results in pre- liminary guidelines for the organization of community-oriented software development.
