PhD dissertation survey on requirements engineering practices used in open source software development

Dear sir/madam,

You are invited to participate in a survey titled "requirements engineering practices used in the development of open source software projects". This survey is part of a PhD dissertation study on requirements gathering in open source software development.

10th MSR Conference Annoucement (2013)

The 10th Mining Software Repositories conference is planned for May 18-19 in San Francisco. There are three paper categories this year: research papers, practice papers, and data papers.

Humanitarian FOSS

The Humanitarian FOSS Project is a collaborative, community-building project that was started by a group of computing faculty and open source proponents at Trinity College, Wesleyan University, and Connecticut College. Their goal is to build a community of academic computing departments, IT corporations, and local and global humanitarian and community organizations dedicated to building and using Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) to benefit humanity.

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.

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

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.

Resource collection from opensource.ucc.ie

A bibliography and links to FLOSS workshops and journal special issues is available from opensource.ucc.ie.

FLOSS group on MyExperiment

Interested in analysis of FLOSS project data from repositories? Please feel free to join the FLOSS group on MyExperiment.org!

MyExperiment allows easy analysis workflow sharing and provides social networking tools for research collaboration. The FLOSS group is intended for researchers studying open source software development. Sharing analysis workflows and components is an efficient way to advance the efforts of the FLOSS research community and is consistent with the values of the development communities we study.
