Hello Iwan,
hello all,

in 2014 Miguel et al. from Peru made "A Review of Software Quality Models for 
Evaluation of Software Products" ( 
Besides of ISO 25010 and other quality models they investigated also 
OpenBRR (Open Business Readiness Rating), 
SQO-OSS (Software Quality in an Open Source Context) and 
QualOSS (Quality of Open Source,, 
which are quality models for Open Source software.
Maybe those fit better to GNU Health than ISO 25010 (but a short search on 
their homepages was not successful or convincing for me). 

On Wikipedia I found Open-source software assessment methodologies 

Qualification and Selection of Open Source software (QSOS) is an non-GNU 
under a GNU license ( ) 
which has a general mailing list that was last active in March 2013.

COBIT (Control Objectives for Information and Related Technology) and ITIL 
(Information Technology Infrastructure Library) could be mentioned in this 
The COBIT 5-process reference model defines 37 processes, which are grouped in 
5 domains: one governance domain and 4 management domains.
ITIL is a set of practices for IT Service Management that focuses on aligning 
IT services with the needs of business.
Maybe there are some GNU packages that are certified with this standards within 
their organizations where they are used?

Maybe the GNU Software Evaluation page can also be useful  
( with the topics
Dependencies;  Configuration, building, installation; Documentation; 
Internationalization; Accessibility; Security; Licensing.

My conclusion: I fully agree with Luis and Axel!

Fully agree with Luis.
Question is how the ISO standard can be fulfilled, and how important some of 
the measures (e.g. - pleasure - degree to which a user obtains 
pleasure from fulfilling their personal needs) really are.

Without having (bought and) read it completely, it does not deal only with the 
software component, but as well with infrastructure aspects (Performance 
efficiency - not only a SW design measure) and the implementation project 
itself (e.g. requirements management, functional suitability). Many of the 
points look like common sense to me (which does not surprise if you look at 
other methodologies and guidelines, like Six Sigma).

Yes, freedom directly relates to Confidentiality, Modifiability, Reusability, 
Adaptability, Replaceability, ...., and , last but not least, freedom from risk 
and economic risk mitigation.
