One of the most important indicators of open source software (OSS) project success is the number of developers joining the project. Some OSS projects begin with a previously networked group of experienced developers who are then able to recruit other developers. However, the vast majority of OSS projects are initiated by one or at most a few developers who are not yet part of a collaborative network and have to wait for potential developers to notice and join their projects.
