Research Into Recruiting and Retention in FOSS Projects

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!
