Community source system development has emerged as a new way of developing enterprise applications, leading to a unique type of open source development involving collaborative investment decisions by multiple institutional partners. The community source network formation has become an interesting issue to study. We use the social entrepreneurship case of the Kuali community source network to examine the antecedents of community source network formation, and in particular the likelihood of existing organizations to join such a network. We develop propositions and a model, and offer some thoughts on future directions for research on this emerging phenomenon.
