The Survey on Free/Libre and Open-Source Success, conducted in fall 2009 in collaboration with SourceForge Inc., the corporation that owns SourceForge.net (SF), sought to identify the factors which determine the success or abandonment of open-source software (OSS) projects. This chapter describes the survey’s goals, one of which was to discover the principles of successful OSS collaboration. Another goal of the survey was to verify the role of vision, leadership, and utility in the initiation stage and building community in the growth stage.

Keywords:   successful OSS collaboration, abandonment, open-source software, vision, leadership, utility, SourceForge.net, survey
