Organization Contribution Index

An organization that meets the criteria to be an active organization is one that is linked with an active contributor. If a contributor has multiple affiliations, each organization will qualify as a contributing organization.
The Organization Contribution Index page provides analytics of organizational performance for different open source projects hosted by the Linux Foundation. You can view the following insights:
  • How many technical contributors are actively contributing to the open source projects of the organization?
  • How active or inactive an organization is in contributing code to the projects?
  • The organizations that are contributing more to the open source community and many other details.
It helps the community to track the organizations that are most actively engaged with different projects of the Linux Foundation in contributing code and participating in chats and emails.
For the current release, GitHub and Git are the two data sources supported across all monitored repositories during the selected time period.
The analysis is done based on the following parameters:
  • The organization's; name, ID , logo, industry type , and total number of employees.
  • Technical contributor ID, commit SHAs , email IDs, message IDs, etc.
