A STUDY OF OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE COMMONS
By Charles M. Schweik and Robert C. English
We have made this data available in a spirit of openness, so that others can better
understand and possibly reproduce some of our research. Some of these documents
were working documents, and in some cases, we may have made minor changes to
information contained in them that is not documented.
