Open Source Development


Several types of open-source projects exist. First, there is the garden variety of software programs and libraries, which consist of standalone pieces of code. Some might even be dependent on other open-source projects. Distributions are another type of open-source project. Distributions are collections of software that are published from the same source with a common purpose. The most prominent example of a “distribution” is an operating system.
