Mining development repositories to study the impact of collaboration on software systems

Nicolas Bettenburg
2011 Proceedings of the 19th ACM SIGSOFT symposium and the 13th European conference on Foundations of software engineering - SIGSOFT/FSE '11  
Through case studies on a broad spectrum of open-source software projects, we demonstrate the important role of social interactions between stakeholders with respect to the evolution of a software system  ...  Software development is a largely collaborative effort, of which the actual encoding of program logic in source code is a relatively small part.  ...  Through an empirical study on the communication surrounding the process of contribution management in open source software systems, we demonstrate the impact of collaboration on the community developing  ...

Facts and Fallacies of Reuse in Practice

V. Bauer
2013 2013 17th European Conference on Software Maintenance and Reengineering  
As a first step, it empirically assesses the general state of reuse in practice. This is achieved via a large-scale online questionnaire distributed to multiple companies.  ...  In a second step, the findings of the study will be used to extract the context and type of reuse, as well as success factors and hindrances.  ...  The findings of an evaluation on open source software systems indicate that the results of our analysis provide meaningful answers in the identified usage scenarios.  ...

A Linguistic Analysis on How Contributors Solve Software Problems in a Distributed Context [chapter]

Héla Masmoudi, Imed Boughzala
2012 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
There is a little understanding of distributed solving activities in Open Source communities. This study aimed to provide some insights in this way.  ...  The main finding of this research shows that the organization of distributed problem-solving activities in Bugzilla isn't based only on the hierarchical distribution of the work between core and periphery  ...  We have considered the case of Free/Libre Open Source Software (FLOSS) development as an open and distributed process. Mostly, we were interested in software problems found in Bugzilla' bug reports.  ...
