Abstract

Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are often plagued by very limited human and financial resources. In this paper, we show how product line engineering (PLE) offers an opportunity to increase the sustainability of software projects that rely on the help of NGO volunteers. Building on the case of an Italian NGO that supports assistive technologies, we propose a PLE model that only depends on the branching capability of a free version control system.
