At the following URL you will find the beginnings of an open source
software rating system sponsored by Intel, Carnegie Mellon, O'Reilly,
and a company called SpikeSource:
Business Readiness Ratings (BRR) is being proposed as a new
standard model for rating open source software. It is intended to
enable the entire community (enterprise adopters and developers)
to rate software in an open and standardized way....
The ultimate goal of BRR is to give companies a trusted, unbiased
source for determining whether the open source software they are
considering is mature enough to adopt. It will help adopters
assess which open source software is best suited to their needs
and enable them to share findings with the community. It
promotes use and adoption of open source software and may assist
developers in creating and delivering software geared to
Interesting, and FYI.
