Get 11 key insights from our newest survey of open source maintainers

In this report, we share the most fascinating findings from our second biennial maintainer survey, including answering questions like:
  • What percentage of maintainers get paid for their work?
  • How much time do maintainers spend working on open source?
  • Are maintainers aware of prominent software security standards initiatives like OSSF Scorecards, SLSA, and the NIST Secure Software Development Framework and do they plan to align their projects to one or more of them?
  • Are paid open source maintainers more likely to complete important security and maintenance tasks than unpaid maintainers?
