[OpenStack Foundation] OpenStack is participating in a new community analytics project

0 votes

Hi All,

I would like to give you a heads up on OpenStack is joining a new project formed by the Linux Foundation around community health analytics for open source software named CHAOSS [1][2].

The project is getting announced on the Open Source Summit today [3].

The intention is to work on to define a set of (vendor neutral) metrics around different areas, like Project Diversity and Inclusion, Project Growth - Maturity - Decline and so forth.

Beyond defining meaningful metrics that aren’t specific to any participating community or company the project is also intending to put tooling around to collect and visualize the data.

Part of the goals is to have companies using this too internally as part of their InnerSource efforts which can be beneficial on making these companies understand better the purpose of the metrics, how to use them, and so forth.

The project is very interesting as we are all facing the difficulties on how to measure the state and progress of the community, how to create meaningful metrics, how to familiarize them and how to prevent gaming of the numbers. We would also like to ensure that OpenStack is represented in this effort as one of the large open source communities around.

OpenStack is also represented on the Governing Board [4] of the project, where I took the board seat.

If any of you have questions or would like to get involved in the different activities the project has either on the side of defining metrics or work on the tooling around, please reach out to me I would be happy to help you.

Thanks and Best Regards,

Great to see. Is it possible to have the metrics for the whole of OpenStack and the metrics per OpenStack project? This could potentially be useful for some of the tags if we’re happy with the metrics.

Hi Tim,

So far we touched on having metrics for OpenStack as a whole at least for the early stage.

I agree with you that having the metrics boil down to project level would be very beneficial. I have it on my agenda to look into that when we are getting some traction with both the metrics definition and the tooling around and I see the possibilities better.

If you have any metrics to cover or tags to have metrics for in mind please let me know so I have it on the radar.

Thanks,
Ildikó
