Decentralized Autonomous Organizations have found a use in the governance of open source software projects. However, none of the existing decentralized governance frameworks encompasses all aspects of open source software projects. Therefore, this study presents a governance framework for decentralized autonomous organizations that produce open source software. The framework is built upon a total of 34 articles of DAO and OSS governance.
The framework was evaluated in three leading decentralized autonomous organizations that produce open source software. The evaluation highlighted the relevance of the framework and the categorization of governance mechanisms. Finally, we list emerging governance practices in various governance domains in this developing field.
