2020 FLOSS Roadmap

The 2020 FLOSS Roadmap is an international effort to produce and maintain a prospective vision of Free / Libre / Open Source Software achievements, challenges and issues. The 2008 printable version can be downloaded from the site.

SQO-OSS

SQO-OSS is a consortium of leading European Open Source projects, consultants and research institutions from Greece, the UK, Germany and Sweden that is developing a comprehensive suite of software quality assessment tools. These tools will enable the objective analysis and benchmarking of Open Source software.

Project Goals
SQO-OSS aims to assist European software developers in improving the quality of their code, and to remove one of the key barriers to entry for Open Source software by providing scientific proof of its quality.

CALIBRE

CALIBRE aims to coordinate te study of the characteristics of open source software projects, products and processes, distributed development, and agile methods.

Integrating and coordinating these research activities to adress key objectives for open platforms, such as transferring lessons derived from open source software development to conventional development and agile methods, and vice versa.

The key goals of CALIBRE are :

FLOSSworld

The FLOSSWorld project aims to strengthen Europe's leadership in research into FLOSS and open standards, building a global constituency with partners from Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Croatia, India, Malaysia and South Africa.

Context

Managing the Complexity of the Open Source Infrastructure

Mancoosi is a European research project in the Seventh Research Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission. The project is situated in the FP7 theme Information & Communication Technologies (ICT), Challenge 1: Pervasive and Trusted Network and Service Infrastructures, Objective 2007.1.2 Service and Software Architectures, Infrastructures and Engineering. The project has started February 1st, 2008, and will have a duration of 3 years.

EDOS - Environment for the development and Distribution of Open Source software

The EDOS project aims to study and solve problems associated with the production, management and distribution of open source software packages.

Software packages are files in the RPM or Debian packaging format that contain executable programs or libraries, their files, along with metadata describing what's in the package and what conditions are needed to use it.

QualOSS

QUALOSS studies QUALity in Open Source Software

QUALOSS plans to mostly automate the quality measurement of open source software. The QUALOSS platform uses tools to analyse two types of data: source code and project-repository information. Thanks to the tooled-method of QUALOSS, it will be possible to assess the quality of open source projects quantitatively, objectively and rapidly.

Oekonux Conference: Free Software and Beyond The World of Peer Production

Project Oekonux researches the economical, political and social forms of Free Software and similar forms of production we collectively call peer production. In Project Oekonux, different people with different reasons and different approaches get together to build something new. A lot of participants want to know, whether and if so, how, the peer production can serve as a basis for a new society.
