Thanks Simon, I didn't know that study.

I agree that mapathons have little direct effect, as we also discussed at
my diary post about the subject [1]. But in our case, it did help a lot in
growing our core community. I wouldn't know if it is measurable, but I have
the feeling it does help in getting more attention for the project, which
in the long run is necesary. And even if recruitement is low, all else
being equal, it will recruit more women.
