Scott Shawcroft has announced the project. "OpenSourceWatershed is a project aimed at understanding the relationship between distributions (downstream) and the individual software components (upstream). It is the basis for a larger study of distributions and their evolution." He concludes that Arch Linux tends to be the least "obsolete," in that only 45% of its packages are behind the leading edge. Debian and openSUSE, instead, are said to be 95% obsolete. The slides from his OSCON talk [PDF] are also available.
