Businesses and research establishments are increasingly turning to Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) as a means to lower software development, acquisition, and deployment costs. However, software quality and security remains key stumbling blocks to full scale FOSS adoption and deployment.

This paper is to understand the community governance of the bug reporting and fixing process.
