TIL: out of 1K most starred GitHub projects marked as being developed in Haskell, 334 have truck factor (as defined here: https://t.co/ew1SIRTmCh) more than one. Twelve have TF > 10. https://t.co/GwBygZnyZu
TIL: out of 1K most starred GiHub projects marked "Haskell", only 7 have truck factor (defined as per https://t.co/ew1SIRTmCh) more than 2. And only 38 have TF > 1. https://t.co/ivkWSzwhkJ

Agree with @britta_wstnr #OpenScienceIMC: hugely problematic if a specific methodology has low "bus factor" (paper: https://t.co/vp5j72t5nE). So glad that for psychometric network models, bus factor has been rising rapidly in 2018/2019! Nonetheless: stay safe! https://t.co/vCWrGbZ1QZ

An enourmous amount of widely used Open Source projects are completely dependent on 1 person. If you use this this creates a huge risk. So contribute to the projects you use. Paper: https://t.co/wJRnmPmmAZ https://t.co/2MeuOdXmgL
(...) Also, the reference for that "Truck factor" is really good: https://t.co/OanJCTO58S
