Call for Quality: Open Source Software Quality Observation [chapter]

Adriaan de Groot, Sebastian Kügler, Paul J. Adams, Giorgos Gousios
2006 IFIP International Federation for Information Processing  
This paper describes how a Software Quality Observatory works to evaluate and quantify the quality of an Open Source project.  ...  Such a quality measurement can be used by organizations intending to deploy an Open Source solution to pick one of the available projects for use.  ...  Third-party quality assessment of closed source software involves guessing in most cases. The number of open bugs might give another impression of the quality of a product.  ...

Filtering Bug Reports for Fix-Time Analysis

Ahmed Lamkanfi, Serge Demeyer
2012 2012 16th European Conference on Software Maintenance and Reengineering  
Unfortunately, the fix-times as reported in typical open-source cases are heavily skewed with a significant amount of reports registering fix-times less than a few minutes.  ...  Using a small-scale replication of a previously published bug fix-time prediction experiment, we show that the additional filtering of reported bugs indeed improves the outcome of the results.  ...  Attribute Description day opened day in which the bug was reported month opened month in which the bug was reported year opened Table IV summarizes IV these results for the different software  ...
