I'm interested in finding out if anyone else is actively researching open source software development. When i mean research I mean of the academic kind. But any sort of rigorous research is included. I noticed that redhat has put up some grants for doing research on Open Source at the Red Hat Center.
So far I haven't found much content apart from informed expert commentary (from journalists and programmers and the like) published through books, web pages or discussion lists. The amount of quality content is growing rapidly but 'research' pieces are hard to find. Would anyone find it useful to have a site that tracks the research that people are doing regardless of field of interest? I would personally find it handy. Put that on my TODO list.
