Abstract

Open-source software projects rarely have highquality
process support. Any tools which are used to
control workflow in a project are usually fixed to a
particular process, which is often not made explicit.
In order to improve the support for process modelling,
monitoring, and control, it is necessary to use tools which
allow the creation and manipulation of process models.
This paper describes the GENESIS platform, an opensource
lightweight process-neutral toolkit which supports
distributed collaboration over the internet for software
engineering. The capabilities provided by the platform
make it suitable for adoption by open-source projects.
Many open-source projects have little or no automated
process support. The GENESIS project offers these
capabilities in a form which is ideal for adoption by such
projects.
