Asking for feedback - what questions should we ask? whatcanidoforfedora.org
by Ankur Sinha
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I wanted to collect some data on how well whatcanidoforfedora.org
works. This is the initial set of questions I've come up with. Could I
request folks to please see if they're OK and suggest adding/removing
some to improve the data we'll collect from this?
- - are you an existing contributor or a newbie?
- - did the site succeed in matching you to a team or task?
- - how much time/effort did it take?
- - do you feel the site took you through the correct steps to match you
to the team/task?
- - do you feel it is the correct team or task for you? Why?
- - did you undertake the task/join the team?
- - did you find the site easy/difficult/confusing to use?
- - what language did you use the site in?
- - do you feel more confident about being a community member after using
- - do you feel that using the site has helped you learn more about the
community and the project?
- - how do you feel the site can be improved?
I want to learn a few things here:
- - do people actually use whatcanido and get anywhere?
- - I feel the questions/suggestions are now a bit too specific. I ended
up on "anaconda" in a test run, and in "docs beats" in another. I
really don't expect a newbie to take either one of these up - they
don't know anything about the community, neither the anaconda team, nor
the docs team. Can we expect them to become part of the community by
undertaking such specific, complicated tasks? So, while whatcanido is a
place where you go to find "open tasks", I don't think it's a newbie
onboarding tool at the moment.
- - does the site give people a general idea of how the community
I don't know if we can find one place to collect all the feedback - if
nothing comes up, I'll just ask people to e-mail me and I can manually
collate the information?

2013 study into open source contributor communities
by Justin W. Flory
An interesting link I found earlier over the weekend about what seems to
be an on-going research report / analysis into open source communities,
their demographics, and more. A report on the data is in progress, but
for now, a copy of the questionnaire used is available along with dumps
of the raw dataset for importing into R or LimeSurvey.
Thought this could be a useful asset or tool for later learning. :)
