This thesis describes MOSHPIT, an open source project health monitoring tool that can be used to assess project health over time. The free and open source project Twisted is used as a case study in analyzing project health using MOSHPIT. This thesis also summarizes important metrics that are often observed informally or irregularly in open source projects but have never been published, and introduces novel metrics cultivated over the course of the author's experiences contributing to Twisted.
