Survey of motivation of developers who have projects hosted at SourceForge.
"My favorite finding was the line about how much hackers love what they do. 60% said, “With one more hour in the day, I would program.” 70% of the respondents volunteered that lack of sleep was the most significant cost of participation!"
"Another interesting part of the study involved what developers want from open source project managers. Overwhelmingly, they made clear that they want peer leaders, not traditional project managers. They said that they expect an open source project leader to create the initial code base, integrate submissions, open minds to options, and provide motivation, but not to determine or delegate tasks, recruit contributors, or manage timing.
The survey also has a lot of other interesting data on the geographical distribution of respondents, their age, their average amount of programming experience, their job titles, the number of projects they work on, and the amount of time they spend contributing to projects. "
