Abstract

The quality of Open Source Software (OSS) is generally much debated. Some state that it is generally higher than closed-source counterparts, while others are more skeptical. In the QualiSPo project the authors addressed the problem of evaluating OSS products in a manner that is both as complete as possible and objective. To this end, a toolset and an evaluation framework are needed. The paper describes such toolset and framework, and accounts for the first evaluations that are being obtained.
