Strengthening Open Source Development Infrastructure

Throughout its history, open source development has relied, for the successful completion of projects, on loosely coupled technologies. While the end result of these development projects has been successful, the process has often been arduous and not easily adapted by new groups. How much more successful--and attractive to new and corporate developers--might the open source development model be if the underlying infrastructure were strengthened with integrated technology? Using three generic open source projects, we'll explore where and how the current open source development infrastructure can be improved, and consider an improved model for open source development infrastructure.
