See A [[Model of a Mature Open Source Project]] for a case study of the Plone community.
 
 
 
 
 
1.A - informal leadership models that are pragmatically used to govern such projects: what is the nature of leadership and hierarchy in peer production? See [[Hierarchy]], [[Leadership]] and search for these concepts as well as "Authority" in the wiki's search box.

Apart from non-representational self-governance models in the small teams responsible for peer production, whenever the allocation of scarce resources need to takes place, 'peer-informed' representational models will arise.
 
 
 
See for an example, the [[Green Party Integrated Consensus-Consent-Voting Model]]
 
 
 
 
 
'''2. the methods of production used in peer production: how is the work actually done?'''
 
 
 
 
 
2.A. the tools used in the production process (ie. Bitkeeper, CVS, etc.)
 
 
 
 
 
2.B the design of interactions at the level of the product/technological architecture (modularity, encapsulation, information hiding)
 
 
 
 
 
'''3. the forms of governance/ownership/income distribution for the derived and monetizable service and market-oriented production models that derive from commons-related projects'''
