Many open source software (OSS) project creators adopt GitHub as their chosen online repository. They seek out others within the global OSS community of developers. Such community developers are then encouraged to add their capabilities, ideas and coding into a creator's developing OSS project.

A structural equation modelling study of three top OSS programming languages deploys GitHub's operational elements as a four stage directional suite of (1) dependent, (2) intermediaries, and (3) independent elements. It shows a project's activity levels can be enhanced when additional project contributions are effectively stage-wise pursued. A staged development approach helps creators understand the process of attracting OSS developers into a creator's GitHub project.
