On The Study of Open Source Software to Inform the Design of CSCW in Global Software Development

Abstract

Global software development (GSD) is struggling with issues related to globally distributed work, such as coordination, maintaining awareness, and knowledge sharing. Open Source Software, however, appears to have overcome these issues and can be a source of knowledge for advancing GSD. This position paper examines existing CSCW literature related to collaborative practice in OSS to identify areas for further investigation that have potential to improve the conduct of invisible work in GSD.
