Abstract
A framework for analysing the sustainability of a
community in four dimensions – social, cultural, legal and
economical – is presented. The framework is further
differentiated by taking into account the different types of
open source software communities, particularly with regard to
their work ethics: voluntary or salary-based. In conclusion,
the framework is tentatively applied to two communities,
Debian and Eclipse.
