There are many initiatives of open-source software which have success stories for web engi-
neering such as Apache Tomcat, Apache HTTP Server and Python. Many of these projects
have enjoyed wide industry adoption for web-based applications. For the Open Source Soft-
ware (OSS) community and observer, it is important to determine whether a (new) project
initiative is worthwhile, i.e., warrants a closer look and/or sustained support.
This paper proposes an evaluation process and concept for "health" indicators that can help
getting an overview on a large number of OSS projects. For initial empirical evaluation of the
concept, we apply the indicators to wel l-known OSS projects and discuss the results with OSS
experts to investigate the external validity of the indicators.
