Abstract
The ecological and sustainable design, implementation and configuration of software is a rather difficult task these days. Practical guidelines and helpful hints to assist software architects, programmers, and operators in their daily business are still rare. This paper discusses a basic strategy for tackling this problem. It pays special attention to the aspect that modern software applications usually intensively make use of third-party components. Though the relations between these so-called "parts" are manifold, the proposed "software information leaflet" approach might give an idea on how operational support tools could be designed strategically. Finally, the paper lists open research questions addressing the aforementioned issues. Aspects that still have to be examined relate to knowledge modeling, the development of appropriate information encodings, as well as pragmatic utilization aspects.
