Factors Influencing Participant Satisfaction with Free/Libre and Open Source Software Projects
Thesis by (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?"
