"In the context of software analysis, the term software ecosystem is defined by Lungu  as “a collection of software systems, which are developed and co-evolve in the same environment”. The environment can be organizational (a company), social (an open-source community), or technical (the Ruby ecosystem). The ecosystem metaphor is used in order to denote an analysis which takes into account multiple software systems. The most frequent of such analyses is static analysis of the source code of the component systems of the ecosystem." [Wikipedia]Snarky: Just because you're working in a paired environment does not mean we have to take your "ecosystem" into account before assigning you any work.
