Abstract

Open Source Software (OSS) development needs to be considered during software development as to whether to develop an OSS packages, and/or whether to develop with OSS. In this paper we briefly summarize the various characteristics that can be used to describe an OSS project and then explore the possible relationships between OSS products/projects and dependability.
