Welcome to the [http://www.oss-watch.ac.uk OSS Watch] wiki for open source software development in UK Higher and Further Education.
The pages in this wiki are notes on software development practices as they relate to funded research and development within UK higher and further education. These materials are aimed at management and technical staff within these projects. Although we have a UK focus, much of the information here is also of relevance to funded projects in educational organisations outside of the UK.
These documents are "in development", we welcome your input either directly to the wiki or via our ["community-development"] mailing list
