Open source software is getting much attention lately. Using open source software appears to be a profitable way to obtain good software. This is also applicable for organizations doing product line engineering. On the other hand, because of the diverse use of open source software, product line development is an attractive way of working in open source communities. However, at present open source and product line development are not related. This workshop aims to get a better understanding between the two communities to get an insight how they can profit from each other.
