Several public repositories and archives of "facts" about libre software projects, maintained either by open source communities or by research communities, have been flourishing over the Web in recent years. These have enabled new analysis and support for new quality assurance tasks. This paper presents some complementary existing tools, projects and models proposed both by OSS actors or research initiatives that are likely to lead to useful future developments in terms of study of the FLOSS…

Open Source Software Adoption: Anatomy of Success and Failure

TLDR
Hibernia Hospital, an Irish public sector organization, have embarked on the adoption of a range of OSS applications over several years, some of which have been successfully deployed and remain in live use within the organisation, whereas others, despite achieving high levels of assimilation over a number of years, have not been ultimately retained in liveUse in the organization.

Preface Evaluation and Selection of Free and Open Source Software: a Review and Portfolio Planning Proposal

  • Computer Science
TLDR
A well-known portfolio planning method, the BCG matrix, is employed for arriving at a very broad classification of open source projects, based on an analysis of their growth rates in several aspects.

Open Source Software Governance Serving Technological Agility: The Case of Open Source Software within the DoD

TLDR
The traditional role focusing mainly on cost issues is revised and open source software with distinctive properties serving the management of innovation and technological agility at the level of complex systems is introduced, exemplified here with the constraints associated to weapon systems and the Network centric warfare doctrine.

Using Repository of Repositories (RoRs) to Study the Growth of F/OSS Projects: A Meta-Analysis Research Approach

TLDR
Data obtained from Flossmole’s raw and summary data of the sourceforge repository supports the hypothesis that F/OSS development is moving “up the stack” from developer tools and infrastructure support to end-user applications such as Databases.

Mining Software Repositories with iSPAROL and a Software Evolution Ontology

TLDR
EvoOnt is presented, a software repository data exchange format based on the Web Ontology Language (OWL), which includes software, release, and bug-related information and allows to derive assertions through its inherent Description Logic reasoning capabilities.

Enhanced Semantic Access to Software Artefacts

TLDR
This paper presents a semantic-based prototype that is made for an open-source software engineering project with the goal to explore the methods for assistingopen-source developers and software users to learn and maintain the system without major effort.

LD2SD: Linked Data Driven Software Development

TLDR
LD2SD is introduced, a light-weight Semantic Web methodology to turn software artefacts such as data from version control systems, bug tracking tools and source code into linked data, allowing for a uniform query and integration.

The Ultimate Debian Database: Consolidating bazaar metadata for Quality Assurance and data mining

TLDR
The Ultimate Debian Database (UDD) is presented, which is the countermeasure adopted by the Debian project to the above “data hell”, turning Quality Assurance needs that could not be easily implemented before into simple SQL queries.

Cross-repository data linking with RDF and OWL Towards common ontologies for representing FLOSS data

TLDR
This paper provides an approach to the problem of integrating data from multiple research repositories for FLOSS data by describing parts of an ontology developed for the integration and analysis of project communications drawn from FLOSSmole, the Notre Dame archive and direct collection of data.

Factors Affecting the Development of Absorptive Capacity in the Adoption of Open Source Software

TLDR
This paper addresses the gap in research by investigating the organizational knowledge assimilation process within the context of the adoption of OSS by developing a framework that is grounded in literature and that illustrates which contextual factors influence the development of absorptive capacity.

What's all the FOSS? : How Freedom and Openness Are Changing the Face of Our Educational Landscape

TLDR
A summary of its definition, philosophy, and major areas of research, including strengths and limitations, diffusion in education and educational uses as well as a look at the opportunities, issues, and challenges associated with FOSS are provided.
