Perspectives on bugs in the Debian bug tracking system

Julius Davies, Hanyu Zhang, Lucas Nussbaum, Daniel M. German
2010 2010 7th IEEE Working Conference on Mining Software Repositories (MSR 2010)  
The majority are reported by individuals who appear in the bug database once, and only once. There also exists a small group of bug reporters with over 1,000 bug reports each to their name.  ...  Bugs in Debian differ from regular software bugs. They are usually associated with packages, instead of software modules. They are caused and fixed by source package uploads instead of code commits.  ...  CONCLUSION AND FUTURE WORK In this paper we explored four perspectives on bugs in the Debian bug tracking system between January 2007 and December 2009: 1) Bugs are usually associated with packages.  ...

Crawling Bug Tracker for Semantic Bug Search [chapter]

Ha Manh Tran, Georgi Chulkov, Jürgen Schönwälder
2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
However, searching bug tracking systems can be time consuming since generic search engines do not take advantage of the semi-structured knowledge recorded in bug tracking systems.  ...  We present work towards a semantics-based bug search system which tries to take advantage of the semi-structured data found in many widely used bug tracking systems.  ...  The work reported in this paper is supported by the EC IST-EMANICS Network of Excellence (#26854).  ...

The impact of cross-distribution bug duplicates, empirical study on Debian and Ubuntu

Vincent Boisselle, Bram Adams
2015 2015 IEEE 15th International Working Conference on Source Code Analysis and Manipulation (SCAM)  
Although open source distributions like Debian and Ubuntu are closely related, sometimes a bug reported in the Debian bug repository is reported independently in the Ubuntu repository as well, without  ...  We perform a case study on Ubuntu and Debian bug repositories to measure the amount of cross-distribution bug duplicates and estimate the amount of time lost.  ...  In each bucket, we use one responsible master bug report as identifier of the bucket. The master bug reports in Ubuntu track duplicates from all distributions (see zone #2 and #5 on Figure 1 ).  ...

Weaving a Semantic Web Across OSS Repositories

Olivier Berger, Valentin Vlasceanu, Christian Bac, Quang Vu Dang, Stéphane Lauriere
2010 International Journal of Open Source Software & Processes  
For that, we investigate the potential of using Semantic Web technologies in navigating between many different bugtracker systems scattered all over the open source ecosystem.  ...  A goal of the research conducted within the HELIOS project, is to address bugs traceability issues.  ...  In the Debian bugtracker debbugs, such links between Debian bug reports and corresponding upstream bugs is tracked by manually setting a "forwardedto" attribute on Debian bug reports.  ...
