I was recently contacted by Andreas Schilling, a PhD student at Bamberg University, regarding his research into recruiting and retention for Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) projects. Andreas and I did a one hour interview, and he was kind enough to post the notes on his blog. Andreas has submitted a paper for the 7th International Conference on Open Source Systems, where he hopes to present his preliminary findings. I hope folks find the interview comments useful.
Thanks to Andreas for interviewing me for his research, and best of luck to him in his research!

Leslie, that link http://andreas.schilling-net.eu/post/3553088638/interview-leslie-hawthorn no longer works — do you possibly have those notes somewhere to post or send? Thanks!
Thank you for letting me know. I will check in with Andreas to get a better link.
You can find a list of my publications under this link (I have currently 2 more papers in review and will submit one more at the beginning of next week):
