Developing an open source project can seem daunting at times. Finding time to dedicate to a project can be difficult, and when it finds success, reported issues and proposed changes to review can seem endless. Selecting open source libraries to use is no easier — you must make a choice between multiple options, and short of reviewing the library’s entire codebase, how can you make such a selection (and know you made the right one)? The open source community has answers to these problems by automating many common-sense checks into contributing and providing ways to show summaries of those results to prospective users.
