May I suggest “community software”?

For what it’s worth, there is (perhaps was) an line of practice called Community Source that was used in the higher education community. I use the word ‘was’ because the communities that adhered to the phrase have mostly gone by the wayside. Michael Feldstein has perhaps the most pointed autopsy of the term in his post, Community Source Is Dead.

Personally, I like the Community Source term because it brings to the front important parts of the process other than coding: documentation, bug triage, string translation, etc.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
