Determining the True Openness of Open Source Projects
The motivation for writing this paper originated from various discussions evolving around what makes a project a true open source project beyond just the choice of license. People have different opinions and thoughts about the various indicators of a project’s openness. In this paper, we explore such indicators that together can help define the true openness of a given project and conclude with some recommended practices and other practices to avoid in an open source project, touching on a dozen different areas. We hope this paper becomes a trigger for new conversations in open source projects on how to be more open, transparent, and inclusive.
