In Mancoosi, we deal with real-life FOSS distributions (such as Debian, Mandriva, Ubuntu, ...) considering all their packages to spot, model, and exploit their (sometimes hidden) properties. To this end, we ended up performing measures and analysis over FOSS package repositories and package managers.

Analysis and measures of FOSS distributions

As those measures and analysis get clearer, we make them available here in terms of conclusions we have drawn and of live data available to the related communities.
