In 2017, Mozilla embarked upon an effort to revitalize open source contribution and participation across the organization. Working with Bitergia, we analyzed 16 years of contribution data, ran surveys, and spoke with both employee and non-employee contributors.

A key finding was that while Mozilla was fully committed to OSS co-development, we didn't have a common framework to help us talk about how OSS project differs in terms of goals, environment, and resourcing. Our one-size-fits-all mental model meant we didn't always set correct expectations around a project or commit appropriately.

This presentation will show the work done with Bitergia to gain a more thorough understanding of what OSS contribution at Mozilla looks like and the Open Source Archetypes, which are a loose definition of OSS models as found in the wild, which we created with the help of Open Tech Strategies.
