@antimule @Oliver_S_Curry I think you're using the unreviewed version. The raw data is available with the published, peer-reviewed version as supplemental info. https://t.co/xxUWMcLXjy The drop for women between gender-neutral and gendered contributions is 12%. For men, it's 4%.

@BryanLunduke Sure, but shouldn't these groups be able to decide for themselves whether it's offensive? Our open community is evidently (https://t.co/N1mqzpQMNy) not as open to the contributions of women. Let's change that.

@soniagupta504 1/2 There's data to support your claim of perceived competence. This research suggests that a pull request is less likely to be accepted if the gender of the developer is identifiable as female. https://t.co/d88Gk74TCB

@florianederer Really interesting paper. Would be great to see dynamics, what happens conditional on being hired. Paper here suggests code written by women more likely to get accepted conditional on being part of project. https://t.co/4PJ3mcPsYR

An unfortunate, but not too suprising conclusion: "Our results suggest that although women on GitHub may be more competent overall, bias against them exists nonetheless." https://t.co/Wt826mTVAt @ruhiyakris
@dbader_org https://t.co/HsCk5R3LNi analyzed 4M pull requests from GHtorrrent. Using similar techniques + clone + python3-pylint may be practical on VM
RT @theanonydog: Pull requests from women are more likely to be accepted. But only when folks can't see they're women. https://t.co/TigRoCV…

When you think about creating an open-source community, need to build in bias-controls! https://t.co/mjh5vfYL4m

@Pathdom @classiclib3ral With some tweaking similar arguments make sense when applied to gender difference. Then you have data like this: https://t.co/9z7vkTorRE
