Open Source. Does every contribution matter?
I've created this form to learn from you if there are better ways to help open source projects.
I wonder if having just Issues, Pull Requests, and Stars is enough.
Do you mostly use open source libraries, tools, and applications?
Yes, I mainly use Open Source. Lots of options, free to try and use.
Yes, I mainly use Open Source, and I try to support OSS movement as well.
Yes, but I am okay with paying for software; Open Source does not mean it is free.
No, I prefer proprietary software as it is more polished and has better customer support
Do you have at least one open source project of your own?
Have you ever tried to help an open source project?
Yes, I've tried, but I'm not very happy with the results
Yes, my Issues/Pull Requests were accepted or at least reviewed
What kind of action do you prefer to help an open source project you like, outside of the Issue/PR/Star dogma?
Write a review
Share the experience of using for commercial projects
Write a post comparing it to other solutions (review, some benchmarks, etc.)
Give a talk about the project on a meetup or a conference
Say thanks to the maintainer (Email, Tweet, etc.)
Donate some money to the project (or beer)
If you already maintain an open source project, do you need to know who your users are?
I'm not a maintainer, so I don't care
I'm not a maintainer, but I think it is quite useful
I'm a maintainer; I could chat with my users in Gitter, and I have PRs and Issues for my project. That's enough
I'm a maintainer, and it is interesting for me to know who are those crazy people using it!
What tools do you use to communicate when working on your open source project?
Issues & PRs
If you'll have access to a platform where you could collaborate to help an open source project besides just coding, will you invest more time to contribute back?
I'm busy enough, and I don't want to waste my time. If I have any trouble, I'll create an Issue.
I help projects as much I can, and I'm pretty satisfied with the current state of affairs. I don't think we need this kind of stuff
I'm not sure that I could help project as a coder, but if you suggest me what else I can do — I'll try to do it
