The quality of Open Source Software products is directly related to its community's health. To date, health analysis is made accessing available data repositories or using software management tools that are often too static or ad hoc. To address this issue, we propose to adopt principles and methods from the Service Oriented Computing field. Particularly, we propose to adapt the concepts of quality service and service level agreement, and propose to reuse the existing body of knowledge and techniques from SOC monitoring. To demonstrate the feasibility of the approach, we use a service monitoring framework called SALMonOSS as a proof of concept to realize the implementation of the proposal.
