Sustainability and Diversity of Open Source Software Communities: Analysis of the Android Open Source Project

Authors:
Remo Eckert
Andreas Mueller

Keywords: Open Source Software; Sustainability; Diversity; Android.

Abstract:
Open Source Software (OSS) projects rely on the efforts of thousands of software developers. The sustainability and diversity of these communities are two important factors for the long-term viability of OSS communities. This paper reviews the research on OSS sustainability and diversity. Drawing on the findings of measures on sustainability and diversity, we applied a number of the established metrics to the Android Open Source Project and found that over a third of all contributions originate from Google. Surprisingly, in 2015 we saw a decrease in the total number of contributors within the Android project. Findings from our analysis highlight the importance of sustainability and diversity for the development of OSS.
