With the advent of Open Source Software (OSS) at the end of last century, many proponents believe that OSS is a new software development process and some even advocate OSS as a revolution for software engineering. The Cathedral and the Bazaar is a typical metaphor of the software development methodologies for the Closed Source Software (CSS) and the OSS. By comparing the phased (namely, requirement analysis, document design and system design, coding, testing and maintenance) software development methodology proposed by Software Engineering (SE), and by studying the management tools provided by, we believe OSS development method not only follows the phased software development process, but also in return enriches the theory of SE.
