Open Source projects; Cave or community?
Slashdot has a link to an article at FirstMonday.org saying most Open Source projects are created by a small group of people, not dozens or hundreds. The author writes: "Based on a study of the top 100 mature products on Sourceforge ... most OSS programs are developed by individuals, rather than communities. The median number of developers in the 100 projects I looked at was 4 and the mode was 1."
