Abstract: Software Engineering has not been able to mature properly due to propietary practices that (still) predominate the world of commercial software. However, Libre Software and the development methods associated to Libre Software projects offer a great opportunity in order to gain further knowledge on how software is created as well as the interactions that exist among the different participants in its conception. This paper tries to present a quantitative approach based on the extraction, processing and analysis of information originated by/from Libre Software. To see the contributions and possibilities that this new vision may offer to Software Engineering and to Libre Software state-of-the-art and future plans in this field will be shown.
