Understanding the inner life of free / open source software projects is important to developers, users and decision makers. But gaining this knowledge is a specialized, time-consuming and error-prone task. Fortunately, software development analytics comes to the rescue: it highlights interesting aspects of a project, tracks relevant patterns, and assists in the early identification of problems. It can be used to study fairness and neutrality, efficiency, control, dependability, and other important aspects of a project. Providing the results of those analytics allows for a new level of transparency and self-awareness of the community, leading to the concept of "Open Development Analytics". The talk will explore this concept, presenting also some specific examples of how to use it in the real life of software development projects.
