Most of the process models so far have been introduced in the domain of software engineering are meant for proprietary software. Though, in the case of open source software development, the popular Bazaar model can be mentioned, it has some limitations too. The present research has attempted to formulate a process model for developing a software project exclusively for the open source paradigm. The authors have named it "Unified Software Development Model for Free/Open Source (USDM)". Not only they have introduced USDM, they have also validated this new model by initiating a project on Bangla pre-processor in the domain of open source development.
