Patrick Oor and René Krikhaar. Balancing Technology, Organization, and Process in Inner Source. In Combining the Advantages of Product Lines and Open Source. Dagstuhl Seminar Proceedings, Volume 8142, Schloss Dagstuhl – Leibniz-Zentrum für Informatik (2008)


The Software Product Line strategy resorts often on a platform team, being responsible for the core assets. A central problem is that this platform team becomes a bottleneck in the development organization, as conflicting requirements are asked for by many different core assets users. This presentation is about how Open Source Development Methods help to decouple product and platform teams. The idea is that working in an Open Source manner within the borders of a company gives the right amount of flexibility to each product team, while allowing the platform team to focus on the long term business targets and build a sustainable set of core assets.
