Assessing process maturity of open source projects
For traditional software development, process maturity models (CMMI, SPICE) have been long used to assess product quality and project predictability. For OSS, on the other hand, these models are generally perceived as inadequate. In practice, though, many OSS communities are well-organized, and there is evidence for process maturity in OSS projects. This position paper presents work in progress on developing a process maturity model specific for OSS projects.
