The paper introduces the Open Maturity Model that is an assessment model for the Free/Libre Open Source software development process evaluation. The model was based on the knowledge about the Free/Libre Open Source Software process obtained with an extensive research of Free/Libre Open Source Software developers, users and integrators. The structure of the model resembles in many aspects the Capability Maturity Model. We decided to propose a tree level scale in order to keep it as simple as possible and make it attractive for Free/Libre Open Source Software communities. The proposed model is a means to increase the quality of the Free/Libre Open Source Software products and can promote their larger adoption.
