Basic Level
The basic level contains the essential TWEs that all developers will need for building reliable FLOSS. Some of these elements are included in maturity levels (ML) 2 and 3 process areas in CMMI (e.g. PDOC, STD).

The FLOSS TWEs from the basic level include only the minimum requirements which are mapped to some CMMI ML 2 process areas, which a widely spreadout development community can establish. These are essential for developing FLOSS. (Optionally, a FLOSS developer may fulfill all process areas from CMMI ML 2).
