Who Contributes to What? Exploring Hidden Relationships between FLOSS Projects

Abstract : In this paper we address the challenge of tracking resembling open source projects by exploiting the information of which developers contribute to which projects. To do this, we have performed a social network study to analyze data collected from the Ohloh repository. Our findings suggest that the more shared contributors two projects have, the more likely they resemble with respect to properties such as project application domain, programming language used and project size.
