Measuring developer contribution from software repository data

Georgios Gousios, Eirini Kalliamvakou, Diomidis Spinellis
2008 Proceedings of the 2008 international workshop on Mining software repositories - MSR '08  
We propose a model that, by combining traditional contribution metrics with data mined from software repositories, can deliver accurate developer contribution measurements.  ...  Apart from source code, software infrastructures supporting agile and distributed software projects contain traces of developer activity that does not directly affect the product itself but is important  ...  This work is supported by the European Community's Sixth Framework Programme under the contract ist-2005-033331 "Software Quality Observatory for Open Source Software" (sqo-oss).  ...

Big data = big insights?

Christoph Gote, Pavlin Mavrodiev, Frank Schweitzer, Ingo Scholtes
2022 Proceedings of the 44th International Conference on Software Engineering  
Massive data from software repositories and collaboration tools are widely used to study social aspects in software development.  ...  Recent studies using massive repository data suggest that developers in larger teams tend to be less productive than smaller teams.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We thank Christian Zingg for contributing to the development of the infrastructure to mine edits and co-edits from software projects on the ETH Zurich scientific compute cluster Euler.  ...

2018 Journal of Information and Data Management  
An example of such volumes is in software repositories, a type of Web storage platform for software and projects,their developers and companies.  ...  In this work, we first present a systematic literature review over topics related to such repositories. Then, we extract their data and enrich it by building a development network.  ...  One type of such tools is software repositories, in which developers easily contribute to different projects around the world.  ...
