In this paper, we examined the case of a 30-month government-academia
development collaboration to map empirical practices that harmonized the
differences in open source software project management on both sides. We
evidence our adopted practices from the data collected on the repository
management tool of the developed platform itself. The benefits of the empirical
management model created in this project are revealed by the results of surveys
with participants on both sides of the project. These results suggest the
adoption of empirical practices based on open source ecosystems and agile
methodologies to improve the software development in context with diversity of
organizational culture and people mind-set.
