Abstract : Governments, universities, and other public institutions not only use open source software OSS but also contribute to existing OSS projects or even initiate new OSS communities. Public administrations such as City of Munich are actively involved in the development of LibreOffice City of Munich 2012; Sneddon 2015; others like the Swiss Federal Office of Topography swisstopo supported the OpenLayers 3 implementationsubstantially via an international crowdfunding campaign Moullet 2014. Starting a new OSS project may simply mean publishing source code on public repositories as the UK government is doing on GitHub using the GitHub and Government service. Or it may also include establishing governance rules as the Swiss Federal Court did when releasing its internal court decision administration system thus initiating the OSS project OpenJustitia Brunner 2013.
