Earnest if Not Agile: Community ownership of open source software solutions

The ISLE project is an attempt to apply contemporary deployment and maintenance solutions to the large Islandora digital repository stack. After the initial round of vendor-driven prototyping, a volunteer community took over ISLE maintenance and kicked off a second round of development and documentation. This poster session explores how the community worked to reconcile distributed volunteer work among team members (primarily developers and librarians in academic institutions) with a project structure initially created in a full-time software development environment.
