This research project investigates the nature of intragroup conflict in Free and Open Source Software Development, and its relationships with group outcomes such as performance. Types of conflict considered involve those traditionally considered in research on distributed work, such as task, relationship and process conflict. Also considered are interactions between conflict types on team performance, while accounting for moderators and intervening variables. The SourceForge.net dataset will provide only project level variables, thus there is minimal risk involved for identification of individual developers.
