GitHub open source software developers remain in short supply. Successful GitHub projects offer multiple pathways for developers to contribute into their repositories. This study's GitHub JavaScript big data is path modelled to provide understanding of the different significant developer contribution pathways towards raising the project's activity level. Its significant pathways offer the project's creator benchmark decision making capabilities that can be used to trigger faster project software development through to its next completion point. This approach has behavioral consumptive-value connotations that may provide a future pathway towards tapping big data sources and to also delivering real business values.
