Using Topic Models to Support Software Maintenance

Scott Grant, James R. Cordy, David B. Skillicorn
2012 2012 16th European Conference on Software Maintenance and Reengineering  
Our recent research has shown that the latent information found by commonly used topic models generally relates to the development history of a software system.  ...  While it is not always possible to associate these latent topics with human-oriented concepts, it is demonstrable that they identify historical maintenance relationships in source code.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS This work is supported in part by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, by the Ontario Graduate Scholarship Program, and by an IBM CAS faculty award.  ...

Correlating Social Interactions to Release History during Software Evolution

Olga Baysal, Andrew J. Malton
2007 Fourth International Workshop on Mining Software Repositories (MSR'07:ICSE Workshops 2007)  
We employ an information retrieval approach to find correlation between source code change history and history of social interactions surrounding these changes.  ...  The results of these exploratory case studies demonstrate the evidence of similarity between the content of free-form text emails among developers and the actual modifications in the code.  ...  We used fine grained analysis of release repositories to recover the history of source code modifications indicated by lines that have been added, deleted and changed during the evolution of a source file  ...

2014 2014 IEEE 4th Workshop on Mining Unstructured Data  
However, source code evolves, which causes models to become obsolete. In this paper, we explore the approach of topic modeling changesets over the traditional release approach.  ...  We conduct an exploratory study of four open source systems. We investigate the differences in corpora in each project, and evaluate the topic distinctness of the models.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT We thank the anonymous reviewers for their insightful comments and helpful suggestions.

Identifying Knowledge Divergence by Vocabulary Monitoring in Software Projects

Jan Nonnen, Paul Imhoff
2012 2012 16th European Conference on Software Maintenance and Reengineering  
During the development of a project, words used in source code add up to a big vocabulary, which may lead to a divergent word-understanding and word-knowledge between developers.  ...  In this work we propose a way to identify such situations by analysing the words contained in identifiers obtained through the commit history in a version control system.  ...  Topic evolution: Thomas et at. [10] presented an topic evolution model based on differences between versions. Topics are collections of words that co-occur frequently in the project history.  ...
