Abstract. Software package selection is an activity that plays an increasingly
crucial role in the delivery of software systems. One of its main open issues is
how to structure the knowledge about the software marketplace and in
particular how to know which types of packages are available and which are
their objectives. Profit and non-profit organizations of any kind use to arrange
these types into categories in a hierarchical form. However, the rationale behind
the proposals found is often confusing and therefore their usefulness is
hampered. In this paper we propose the use of taxonomies for structuring this
knowledge. Our taxonomies are goal-driven, which means that we provide a
rationale for the decisions taken. The leaves of the taxonomies are the types of
packages available in the market, whilst the intermediate nodes are categories
