Abstract : In this paper, we propose a layered approach to managing risks in OSS projects. We define three layers: the first one for defining risk drivers by collecting and summarising available data from different data sources, including human-provided contextual information; the second layer, for converting these risk drivers into risk indicators; the third layer for assessing how these indicators impact the business of the adopting organisation. The contributions are: 1 the complexity of gathering data is isolated in one layer using appropriate techniques, 2 the context needed to interpret this data is provided by expert involvement evaluating risk scenarios and answering questionnaires in a second layer, 3 a pattern-based approach and risk reasoning techniques to link risks to business goals is proposed in the third layer.
