We describe a current study for obtaining information about management of commercial and community open source projects. We have interviewed and surveyed leaders of more than 75 open source projects. Questions focused on the styles of leadership and communication, with a technical focus on testing and quality assurance processes. This paper describes the methods used to identify and contact subjects, as well as the questions posed and some results.
