,----[ Quote ]
| The risks of open source lie not in the usage of open source, but the
| management or lack thereof of open source. If a company does not keep track
| of the open source software adopted, it can be difficult and costly to
| identify vulnerabilities and implement patch releases associated with the
| adopted code.
