New Contributors

The New Contributors Dashboard analyzes the participation of new contributors in the project. It provides a leaderboard of the number of new contributors and ranks them based on their contributions over a selected period.

Analyze the dashboard

Why is this metric important?

  • Sustainability and Succession Planning: The continuous involvement of new contributors ensures the long-term sustainability of open-source projects. As existing contributors may move on or take on different responsibilities, new contributors play a vital role in filling those gaps.

  • Fresh Perspectives and Ideas: New contributors bring fresh perspectives, ideas, and diverse skill sets to the project. They may offer innovative solutions, identify areas for improvement, and contribute to the overall project evolution.
