NAME spongex DESCRIPTION The idea behind Project Sponge is to provide some tools to measure an OSS projectÕs vitality. The concept I will use is similar to an APGAR test when a baby is born. A n APGAR test checks the vitals several times after the birth (at birth, and then throughout the next hour or two of life). For an OSS project, you should be checking what I will call the Project Vitality: The vital stats and data showing how well an OSS project is doing at a given point in time. Since Project Vitality can be a relative measure, it is important to be able to compare the Project Vitality to past measurements. The Vitality Dashboard is the visual report of Project Vitality over time. This is targeted at OSS project leads, and specifically, to help commercial open source types to justify the open source approach to management by promises to track progress using some reasonable metrics for success and signs of life. Ideally, sponge can evolve into a sort of OSS Project Analytics tool.
