Abstract

This paper describes the practices created, adopted and evolved in a Distributed Open Source Project (PyPy) project. PyPy is a hybrid project, combining the different aspects of Agile and Distributed Development within the context of an Open Source community. The project is partially funded by the European Commission through the 6th Framework Program. Influences and adoptions of techniques such as "sprinting" has been a core balancing act for the project since its inception. “Sprints” in the Python community differs from the Scrum version of sprints and in this paper we will present how this evolved agile method acts as a primary method of quality assuring the aspects of distributed and dispersed work style of the PyPy project and insures an ongoing interaction with the Open Source aspects of the project.
