Time zone analysis

Where do the developers in my FOSS community live? For large open source communities where personal contact with developers is impossible, answering this simple question may be difficult. Fortunately, a simple technique, time zone analysis, can be used on git and mailing list repositories to at least partially answer this question. Read our blog post “Using Git and mailing lists time zones to find out where developers live” in OpenSource.com to learn more about it.
