Factors Influencing Participant Satisfaction with Free/Libre and Open Source Software Projects
Thesis by http://identi.ca/chawnerb (I haven't looked at it yet, but plan to)

"The purpose of this research was to identify factors that affect participants’ satisfaction with their experience of a free/libre open source software (FLOSS) project. [...] The central research question it answered was, What factors influence participant satisfaction with a free/libre and open source application software project? [...] These suggest that being able to be an active participant in a FLOSS project is one factor that should be examined, and therefore the first sub-question this project answers is, What types of contributions do participants make to free/libre and open source software projects? [...] Do the factors that influence satisfaction vary for different types of participation? If so, in what way?"
