External to Internal Contribution Ratio


Evaluates the balance between contributions from external community members versus internal team members. A higher ratio suggests strong community involvement and external interest, which is vital for open source project sustainability.


(Number of External Contributions / Number of Internal Contributions)


If a project receives 200 external contributions and 100 internal contributions, the ratio is 200/100 = 2.
