CHAOSSCon EU 2019, Why it’s Important for Open Source Metrics to Tell a Story, Brian Proffitt

March 18, 2019

CHAOSS stands for Community Health Analytics Open Source Software and recently at CHAOSSCon EU in Brussels, we spoke briefly to Brian Proffitt, one of the CHAOSS Board members and also Senior Principal Community Architect for Open Source and Standards team at Red Hat. He tells us why it’s important for metrics to tell a story, why previous metrics may not have been as impartial as people would want, and why increased mailing list traffic could indicate a potential community crisis!
