An Annotated Dataset of Stack Overflow Post Edits [article]

Sebastian Baltes, Markus Wagner
2020 arXiv   pre-print
To be able to dig deeper and to extract insights at a higher resolution, we hereby present an annotated dataset that contains over 7 million edits of code and text on Stack Overflow.  ...  Our preliminary study indicates that these edits might be a treasure trove for mining information about fine-grained patches, e.g., for the optimisation of non-functional properties.  ...  OUTLOOK The particular value of our dataset is that the post edits are most likely much smaller in scope and much more fine-grained than, e.g., commits in project repositories.  ...

2014 Proceedings of the 25th ACM conference on Hypertext and social media - HT '14  
We evaluated our approach in the context of the Stack Overflow cQA system, demonstrating how, for given types of editing actions, it is possible to provide accurate reformulation suggestions.  ...  We identify a number of editing actions, and provide a two-step approach for the automatic suggestion of the most likely editing actions to be performed for a newly created question.  ...  This work was carried out on the Dutch national e-infrastructure with the support of SURF Foundation.  ...

Sentiment Polarity Detection for Software Development

Fabio Calefato, Filippo Lanubile, Federico Maiorano, Nicole Novielli
2017 Empirical Software Engineering  
Senti4SD is trained and validated using a gold standard of Stack Overflow questions, answers, and comments manually annotated for sentiment polarity.  ...  With respect to a mainstream off-the-shelf tool, which we use as a baseline, Senti4SD reduces the misclassifications of neutral and positive posts as emotionally negative.  ...  Acknowledgments This work is partially supported by the project 'EmoQuest -Investigating the Role of Emotions in Online Question & Answer  ...
