Abstract

OSS ist eine besondere Form der Softwareproduktion, die Leistungsbeiträge von oft freiwilligen und unbezahlten Beitragsleistern einbezieht. In der Literatur werden drei Gründe für diese freiwilligen Beitragsleistungen diskutiert, nämlich Spass am Programmieren, ein Gefühl der Verpflichtung gegenüber der "Community" und die Durchsetzung pragmatischer Interessen. Der Beitrag untersucht die Funktionsweise dieser drei Motive (z.B. Welchen Einfluss hat das Motiv "Spass" auf den Zeiteinsatz für OSS?)?
