Today's open source world is a completely heterogeneous mix of voluntary communities, open source service providers, non-for-profit associations, government agencies and many more actors. In this context it is a great challenge for a firm to manage successfully its open source projects and create a properous community for them. Several recent examples have shown that such business-controlled communities broke apart through the forking of the project. This speech will analyze why voluntary contributors are beneficious to an open source community, how different types of open source projects are governed, and, by providing examples, what companies have to do to direct their own communities through the perfect balance between control and openness.
