Open Source Software (OSS) is becoming very popular and using OSS in maintenance activities has become one of the OSS important issues. Researches in the area of reuse-based maintenance using OOS are rare. The attributes and metrics of OSS maintenance processes are identified depending on literature study. We have proposed a maintenance framework model for reusing of OSS applications in software maintenance, because there are no well-specified guidelines to follow for reuse-based maintenance
