Understanding the Requirements for Developing and Designing Free/Open Source Software (07 May 2004)
In this talk, I present findings from an ongoing empirical study of social processes, technical system configurations, organizational contexts, and interrelationships that give rise to free/open source software. The focus is directed at understanding what the requirements for designing F/OSS may be. Multiple kinds of software development informalisms are found to play a critical role in the elicitation, analysis, specification, validation, and management of the requirements and design of F/OSS systems, artifacts, processes, project portals, and communities. Subsequently, understanding the roles these informalisms take in the development process for F/OSS is the focus of this presentation.
