Accompanied by the upsurging adoption of open source software (OSS) in a wide range of complex software-intensive systems, practitioners often raise multiple concerns about their maintainability and sustainability. A system that embeds unmaintained components is fragile towards various risks which could result in dire consequences. To address such concerns, this paper introduces the OSS Abandonment Risk Assessment (OSSARA) model, which evaluates the abandonment risk by synthesizing the prediction of potential abandonment of the embedded OSS components.
