This chapter examines the factors that determine the success or abandonment of open-source software (OSS) commons using well-established statistical techniques. It employs five independent variables (software developers, tracker reports, page visits, forum posts, and Project Information Index) and analyzes 2009 data from the Notre Dame SourceForge.net repository. The chapter considers the initiation stage first, followed by the growth stage.

Keywords:   success, abandonment, open-source software, OSS commons, software developers, tracker reports, Project Information Index, SourceForge.net, initiation stage, growth stage
