Nadia Eghbal | Understanding user support systems in open source
Expanding the definition of a maintainer

Finally, I’d like to expand upon the conclusion that we use an overly narrow definition of “maintainer”. Maintainers aren’t just people with commit access, nor the top committers to a repository. I identified at least three distinct maintainer roles, just in this area of research: core developers, issue triagers, and user support.

Because we don’t talk about these as separate roles, we forget this is a thing, and instead expect that core developers do all the work. This mismatch of expectations can lead to the frustration and burnout that’s often expressed on open source projects.

Officially recognizing these roles is about more than accolades: it empowers everyone to focus on what they do best, thus aligning incentives to continue contributing to the project. A code maintainer shouldn’t have to answer questions all day, and a support maintainer shouldn’t have to commit code, if that’s not what they each want to do. Yet a project needs all three roles (among others!) to thrive.

"The answer is that I am a political activist first and foremost. My goal is not to win a virtue contest. My goal is not to ensure that I only run free software while the rest of the world runs Microsoft and Apple products. My goal is to create the legal and cultural conditions for free software to flourish and proprietary software to perish."

Harold Treen • Contributing to prettier-atom 💅
"Open source is a great way to learn about project management: Seeing the amount of tooling and documentation that existed for prettier-atom was really inspiring. Having a command to update your contributors list? For generating a release? For creating consistent commits? These are things I’d never really seen. It’s a great lesson in making projects beginner friendly and easy to setup. These things are easy to gloss over, but provide a lot of value in the long run."
