Adopting Free/Libre/Open Source Software Practices, Techniques and Methods for Industrial Use

Richard Torkar, Pau Minoves, Janina Garrigós
2011 Journal of the AIS  
Three successful FLOSS projects were selected as study targets (the Linux Kernel, the FreeBSD operating system, and the JBoss application server), as well as two projects from Ericsson, a large telecommunications  ...  Like Ericsson, these two companies make use of agile methodologies when producing software-intensive systems, but in other domains, thus contributing to the generalizability of our recommendations.  ...  Oscar Dieste, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, and Dr. Barbara Russo, Free University Bozen/Bolzano, who provided valuable feedback during the course of this study. Furthermore, Prof.  ...

Longitudinal Analysis of the Run-up to a Decision to Break-up (Fork) in a Community [chapter]

Amirhosein "Emerson" Azarbakht, Carlos Jensen
2017 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
Developing complex software systems is complex. Software developers interact. They may have the same or different goals, communication styles, or values. Interactions can be healthy or troubled.  ...  We statistically model the longitudinal socio-grams of software developers and present early indicators and warning signs that can be used to predict an imminent break-up decision.  ...  A case study of the BSD family (i.e., FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and NetBSD, which evolved from the same code base) found that 10-15% of lines in BSD release patches consist of ported edits, and on average 26-58%  ...

A survey and taxonomy of approaches for mining software repositories in the context of software evolution

Huzefa Kagdi, Michael L. Collard, Jonathan I. Maletic
2007 Journal of Software Maintenance and Evolution Research and Practice  
A taxonomy is derived from the analysis of this literature and presents the work via four dimensions: the type of software repositories mined (what), the purpose (why), the adopted/invented methodology  ...  The taxonomy is demonstrated to be expressive (i.e., capable of representing a wide spectrum of MSR investigations) and effective (i.e., facilitates similarities and comparisons of MSR investigations).  ...  The results obtained from ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS We thank the reviewers for their detailed comments and suggestions. These were instrumental in helping us improve the presentation of the survey.  ...

Open Source Software: A Source of Possibilities for Software Engineering Education and Empirical Software Engineering

Letizia Jaccheri, Thomas Osterlie
2007 First International Workshop on Emerging Trends in FLOSS Research and Development (FLOSS'07: ICSE Workshops 2007)  
Software maintenance is a significant part of the software life-cycle cost. Current research focuses on the maintenance of application software.  ...  Before progressing with informing software integration practice, researchers therefore need to better understand the actual work of maintaining integrated systems.  ...  Gentoo supports the following operating systems: GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, Mac OS X, and Dragonfly.  ...

A systematic mapping study of developer social network research [article]

Steffen Herbold, Aynur Amirfallah, Fabian Trautsch, Jens Grabowski
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Developer social networks (DSNs) are a tool for the analysis of community structures and collaborations between developers in software projects and software ecosystems.  ...  Other frequent topics are prediction systems build using DSNs, collaboration behavior between developers, and the roles of developers.  ...  Di Penta, Social interactions around cross-system bug fixings: the case of freebsd and openbsd, in: Proceedings of the 8th working conference on mining software repositories, ACM, 2011, pp. 143-152.  ...
