29 29  Most organizations considering OSS are unfamiliar with authentic open models of production, or how to assess the relative health of OSS communities. Decision makers lack resources to responsibly determine the reliability and sustainability of infrastructure which they depend upon. With such resources, “business readiness,” could be assessed while project success could be furthered.

45 45  One of the most important enablers for successful self-managed distributed community is information to support decision-making. When users of OSS digital infrastructure are able to act rationality in their own enlightened self-interest, they will ensure that the OSS community on which they are dependent is resourced and has the capacity to manage risk. When OSS digital infrastructure maintainers have information that will help inform plans and prioritize resource investment, the community will mature, become more dependable, and “business ready.”
