The idea of Free and Open Source (FOSS) software has been around for almost as long as software development (Neteler and Mitasova, 2008). The famous “four freedoms” paradigm, developed by Richard Stallman (1985, 1997) in his seminal work, proclaims that FOSS is defined as (i) the freedom to run the program for any purpose, (ii) the freedom to study how the program works and adapt it to one’s own needs, (iii) the freedom to redistribute copies, and (iv) the freedom to improve the program and release such improvements to the public. This guarantees that the whole community benefits from software development.
