Project description

The study will analyze dependencies among open source projects (e.g. specified in Maven or npm builds, or through FreeBSD ports dependencies) in order to construct a graph. This will the be analyzed, using e.g. the PageRank algorithm, to determine which are the most important and critical projects. Furthermore, the projects will be assessed in terms of risk they pose to the community, based on characteristics such as the number of committers, licensing, security handling, product and process quality, issue management, and the freshness of commits.
