Free and open source software (FOSS) is increasingly popular in both research and production environments. Traditional closed-source software is often costly or even unavailable on the market, and in a research context the ability to inspect the source code is essential for reliable and reproducible eResearch. But, proverbially, it takes a village. FOSS projects with niche user bases and small core development teams often become moribund due to loss of key personnel and funding support, which is a business risk to consumers of the FOSS project.
