Abstract

This paper describes the agile requirements definition processes performed in open source software development (OSSD) projects. These should be considered as a reliable and viable approach to requirements definition in the area of software engineering (SE) and co-operative work in general. In the beginning, some important aspects of the entire OSSD approach are introduced in order to enable an understanding of the subsequent description of the feedback-based requirements definition processes. Therefore, important characteristics of OSS and OSSD are explained and typical roles, processes and an overall lifecycle model of typical OSSD projects is introduced. This leads to the description of the agile requirements definition processes as they are part of the software improvement process in OSSD projects. Thus, the typical requirements contribution and review processes are introduced and a typical lifecycle of the produced requirements artifact is explained.
