I’m writing an organization governance platform for the Cardano blockchain, targeted first and foremost at open-source development projects. It helps define project/organization ownership and operation. The main problem I am trying to tackle is how to provide stability to open source projects. I see many of them break down due to the following issues:
- Political disagreements
- Lack of funding
- Losing developers
As of now, I have some proof-of-concept code running to record and transfer ownership. The question I am faced with now is how do you incentivize developers to stick with an open source project and hopefully promote more involvement?
So I’d like to hear from you:
- Why do you choose to contribute to open source projects?
- Why do you choose to leave open source projects?
- What would incentivize you to increase your participation in an open source project?
