Submission + - QSOS opensource software methodology-> 1

Nyco writes: "QSOS is an open, collaborative, formal and practical methodology for the Qualification and Selection of Opensource Software. It is published under the GNU Free Documentation License, and hosted by Savannah. The process aims at conceiving a hierarchy of criteria for any software family, evaluating each of them for any software in that family, then graphing and comparing the results for a decision, with the help of GPL-licensed software tools. The generic section of the hierarchy is where the knowledge and richness of the opensource world resides, with criteria covering differents aspects such as durability, industrialization, packaging, exploitability, adaptability, and strategy. QSOS needs contributors, such as XUL, Perl and Java developpers, documenters, internationalizers and localizers, and of course evaluators."
