About the book
"This book has been written to help students and professionals as well to work on free and open source software (F/OSS) projects.
These software projects are released under a freely distributable license which allow you to use, copy, make changes and distribute the software.
This is different from proprietary software, where you only receive an executable under a restrictive license, and the source code is not provided to you.
The book teaches you the methodology to be followed when working with F/OSS projects with similiar programs.
This will help you to become a valuable contributor to these projects, and get wide recognition as an indiviual.
