This grant funds efforts to develop and launch a set of core activities to support open source software engineering projects across CMU. Planned activities include creating a formal structure for managing software developer relations across the university, mapping the current open source activity across campus, and identifying opportunities which could simultaneously address faculty research needs and student training (including support for undergraduate research experiences).   In addition, the new CMU Open Source Program Office will leverage relationships with key collaborators at the Software Engineering Institute (SEI), a fully integrated Federally Funded R&D Center (FFRDC), and produce guidance and best practices for the development and maintenance of open source scientific software in the context of intramural federal research organizations. It will also explore how to support open source software developed to interface with a new “Cloud Laboratory” core facility on campus.
