MS Manual of Style has no “open source” entry

I was just drafting an email and wanted to know if there is a standard way of writing out “open source,” like, is it capitalized.

I happen to have the “Microsoft Manual of Style for Technical Publications, Third Edition” on my desk, and I found no entry for anything resembling “open source” in it.

Somehow, I wasn’t surprised.
