Just a quick note of a couple of things missing: the work of Manuela Schmidt (TU Wein), Yu-Wei Lin (Salford Uni, at the time), et al. which pre-dates the current earliest reference by a couple of years, and is also more rigorous in approach. If I have time I'll dig out the various refs, but noting it here in case I forget. SK53 (talk) 20:46, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

Thanks SK53! I found a couple more links from searching around with those names, but I'm not sure if I found the ones you're thinking of. Maybe "A qualitative enquiry into OpenStreetMap making" (PDF)? Brittag (talk) 21:50, 8 June 2015 (UTC)
Yup, exactly those. The paper & the talks are probably the single most useful source for why people come & stay (or not) as mappers on OSM. Probably the work could do with being repeated on a larger scale (for instance with Missing Maps participants), but that probably requires a new research team. It may also be worth noting various 'outreach' initiatives such as welcoming new mappers: the general opinion is that these have relatively little impact on whether people become committed. Lots of refs in various mailing lists: Simon Poole & SomeoneElse are probably names worth searching for. SK53 (talk) 12:28, 9 June 2015 (UTC)

There´s no such link Is it alive? Sergio (talk) 20:43, 17 February 2018 (UTC)

It was alive since June 2013 when the link was posted here in August 2015... There were posted messages there, including some talks referencing other links.
But you're right, we can no longer find it (or can no longer subscribe it) with the default link given.
You can still find the archives here (up to 11 October 2017):
This list was terminated without any announcement posted to the list itself (or the last messages were not archived before it was stopped) !
