Open Source User Level

I can think of three user levels of participation with open source software.

1. Read Level– read and use FOSS

2. Write Level 

  • 2.1 Non-code contributor – writes non-code artifacts (documentation, blogs, artwork, presentations, etc)
  • 2.2 Code contributor – writes FOSS code
Write level is not an either/or proposition. There are speakers and coders at the same time, and there are a lot of them.
