Ulf Asklund, Lars Bendix:
Configuration Management for Open Source Software, pdf
in preprints of the 1st Workshop on Open Source Software Engineering, Toronto, Canada, May 15, 2001.
Open Source Software (OSS) projects have a seemingly anarchistic way of organising projects and a set-up (many, distributed developers) that is usually considered difficult to handle within the field of configuration management. Still they manage to produce software that is of at least as high a quality as that produced by Conventional Software Development (CSD) projects.
