This paper sets out an argument for experimenting with some aspects of the Open-Source development style in the creation of Computer-Based Systems. The particular objective is to find ways of increasing the Dependability of systems. The most interesting facet of Open Source development in this connection is the use of multiple developers to introduce diversity into the design process. In addition to relying on the fact that no two developers are identical, the suggestion here is that asking each developer to emphasize different goals might result in solutions whose comparison and combination could increase dependability.
