Abstract

This paper describes some aspects of the software development approach which is used in open source software development projects and has evolved over time to a successful software development model. It identifies and the core processes and the deployed software infrastructure of this software development model. This enables the identification of possible improvement opportunities and possibilities to enhance the open source software development model and to adopt some elements of this approach in a commercial software development environment. Since open source software development has already been proven, that it is able to produce successful software products it seems to make sense to integrate some successful elements of this approach into proprietary and distributed software development projects.
