ABSTRACT
<p>Many software development methodologies are called "open source." However simply stating that a project is open source doesn?t precisely describe the approach used to support the project. A multidisciplinary viewpoint can help determine those characteristics that are common to open source projects and those that vary among projects. These characteristics form the basis for a taxonomy of open source projects that?s useful for analyzing and setting up projects. They also provide a starting point for understanding what "open source" means.</p>
INDEX TERMS
