We describe the Extreme Programming Ontology (XPO), a formal model specifying the main concepts used in the extreme programming methodology and their properties. XPO's modular structure was developed using the usual normative top down approach to software engineering process modeling. It relies on a set of core components rooted in three main concepts: organisational role, product and phase. Besides being useful for indexing relevant documents and XP artifacts such as user stories and Wiki pages, XPO is aimed at being a sound basis for nonintrusive analysis of agile processes, mining process data about programmers activity and repositories content in order to extract new concepts potentially identifying critical factors in agile software development. Extension to XPO are also discussed, including other agile methodologies and more general software engineering concepts.
