Managing continuous change in a Software Product Line (SPL) is one of the challenges now faced by the SPL engineering community. On the one hand, the SPL paradigm captures the intrinsic variability of a software based on a systemic vision of the software to model. On the other hand, Agile Software Development advocates the incremental development of software based on constant interaction with a customer community. In this paper, we present an approach based on Composite Feature Models (CFM) to

Preliminary results show that CFMs support the incremental development of a SPL based on interactions with a community, tackling the challenge of SPL continuous evolution.
