...a new way of measuring the openness of open source projects

July 2011

This research report introduces a new way of measuring the openness of open source projects.

The Open Governance Index measures the true openness of eight open source projects – Android, Qt, Symbian, MeeGo, Mozilla, WebKit, Linux and Eclipse – and analyses how governance, and not licenses, tell the full story of a project’s openness, across transparency, influence and control.

Authored and published by VisionMobile
Part funded by webinos under the EU FP7 ICT program

The full, 45-page report examines:

  • Open source cultural roots and working upstream vs downstream
  • Open source licenses vs governance models
  • Analysis and classification of governance models
  • In-depth reviews of Android, Qt, Symbian, MeeGo, Mozilla, WebKit, Linux and Eclipse
  • Best practices in creating an open source project
