The development of open source software is a multidisciplinary approach and it requires different areas of expertise, knowledge, tools and techniques. The open source software development has an important role. During the last decades, open source software development has changed the dynamics of software engineering research and added different new domains. In closed source software, the data related to software development, bug reported before release and post release was not available. It was difficult for researchers to validate their methods and models due to non-availability of data.
