To Rule and Be Ruled: Governance and Participation in FOSS Projects

Abstract : Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) Development has evoked images of full participation, emancipation and flat organization. Despite such rhetoric, some recent studies and practices reveal the re-emergence of hierarchical structures in one form or another as an almost inevitable aspect of the software development process. The objective of this paper is to investigate, both theoretically and empirically, the reasons behind this reappearance of hierarchy and its impact on the participation patterns of open source projects.
