Free Libre Open Source Software (FLOSS) is registering an important rise in popularity and has become a strong asset in software development. Due to their nature, FLOSS projects depend heavily on their community. A strong open source community behind a project provides certain guarantees for the project’s quality and survivability. It is for this reason that so many FLOSS teams have as a priority the creation of healthy communities around their projects. This paper aims to present the efforts and experiences of the small team behind Moodbile: Mobile Learning for Moodle (www.moodbile.org), to create such a community that will help support the project and actively aid in its evolution. We present the steps taken thus far, their potential risks, their outcomes and the plans for the future as we strive to achieve critical mass for the community.
