Abstract

Software quality evaluation has always been an important part of software business. The quality evaluation process is usually based on hierarchical quality models that measure various aspects of software quality and deduce a characterization of the product quality being evaluated. The particular nature of open source software has rendered existing models inappropriate for detailed quality evaluations. In this paper, we present a hierarchical quality model that evaluates source code and community processes, based on automatic calculation of metric values and their correlation to a set of predefined quality profiles.1
