Roles, Responsibilities, and Emerging Leaders in Collaborative Projects - Jeff Osier-Mixon, Intel Corporation / Yocto Project

What, or whom, does it take to run a successful open source project? The Linux Foundation lives on the forefront of collaboration in software development, and nowhere is this more evident than in the Foundation's Collaborative Projects. Balancing the principles of open source with resources from the corporate world, each project has a unique set of needs, resources, and values. The lineup of roles in each project is similar, but how those responsibilities are met is a puzzle.

I have worked with community managers in many different spheres and seen the puzzle take shape, often with leaders emerging from unexpected places. This presentation describes the basic responsibilities needed for open source projects, the roles that normally fill them, and the "gap filling" roles that also appear that can help point toward those emerging leaders.
