Adopting Open Source Software (OSS) components offers many potential advantages – such as cost effectiveness and increased reputation – but also introduces a variety of new risks related to the intrinsic fluidity of the OSS development projects. In this paper, we present results of a systematic literature review on OSS adoption risks, which allows to relate them to available OSS measures. Relying on the results of the review, we also present a risk-aware selection process, which uses OSS measures to rank OSS project according to the adopter’s criteria, improving the quality of the OSS component selection.

Abstract

Adopting Open Source Software (OSS) components offers many potential advantages – such as cost effectiveness and increased reputation – but also introduces a variety of new risks related to the intrinsic fluidity of the OSS development projects. In this paper, we present results of a systematic literature review on OSS adoption risks, which allows to relate them to available OSS measures. Relying on the results of the review, we also present a risk-aware selection process, which uses OSS measures to rank OSS project according to the adopter’s criteria, improving the quality of the OSS component selection.
