BoF: Community Health Analytics for Open Source - Matt Germonprez & Georg Link, University of Nebraska at Omaha

The BoF is for those interested in community health and sustainability. An ongoing challenge for open source communities and participating organizations is to objectively understand issues related to community health. Community leaders, open source foundations, and organizations are putting an effort into understanding healthy and sustainable communities but are lacking cohesive and common measures and tools to assess such issues. The Linux Foundation Community Health Analytics for Open Source Software (CHAOSS) project will organize the BoF with the goal to advance the new project and further the development of objective health metrics. In particular, we will spend the time exploring how members understand and describe the particular composite metric of community growth/maturity/decline.

We believe that from this detailed conversation we will generate practices by which future composite metrics (i.e., risk, diversity, and impact) can be developed. Participants can expect a vibrant discussion around shared ways of understanding community health and sustainability. Everyone is welcome to just sit in and listen, or share experiences and previous work into assessing, measuring, and managing community health and sustainability.
