Mozilla Contributor / Contribution Analysis Project (Joint MoCo & MoFo)

This page is a home for a short piece of work happening in Oct/Nov 2014 to explore some of our existing contribution data. Current presentation of results: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1hsJLv1ieSqtXBzd5YZusY-mB8e1VJzaeOmh8Q4VeMio/edit#slide=id.g4435d357b_20 ("Measuring Engagement")

The goal and scope of the work:

  • Explore existing contribution datasets to look for possible insights and metrics that would be useful to monitor on an ongoing basis, before the co-incident workweek in Portland at the beginning of December.
  • We will:
    • Stress-test our current capacity to use existing contribution data
    • Look for actionable insights to support Mozilla-wide community building efforts
    • Run ad-hoc analysis before building any 'tools'
    • If useful, prototype tools that can be re-used for ongoing insights into community health
    • Build processes so that contributors can get involved in this metrics work
    • Document gaps in our existing data / knowledge
    • Document ideas for future analysis and exploration
