Third round: Hyperledger vs COVID-19
Some weeks ago we introduced Open Source Development resistance against COVID-19 where we analyzed how a pandemic could impact Open Source development on projects such as the Linux Kernel or Kubernetes. This time, Bitergia runs the analysis on a third project: Hyperledger
Second round: COVID-19 vs Open Source Development

Gender-diversity Analysis of the Linux Kernel Technical Contributions
On the 8th of October we joined LinuxCon to share our Gender Diversity Analysis of technical contributions to the Linux Kernel.
We are aware of the diversity gap in the tech industry and the efforts of some institutions, like Linux Foundation, are doing to solve it. So, we decided to add our five cents, working over the weeks to bring some stats about women’s contribution to Linux Kernel.
Before diving deep into our results, let’s take a look at some data we already have from the tech sector. Women represent:

Analyzing code review in Xen
The Xen project is an open source software project that does pre-commit peer code review. This means that every change to the source code follows a code review process, in which any developer can participate, before being accepted in the code base. During that process, the patch is carefully inspected and improved thanks to the contributions of the reviewers. The process takes place in the xen-devel mailing list.
