The implementations of software features evolve as an application matures. We define a measure of feature implementation overlap that determines how similar features are in their execution by examining their call graphs. We consider how this measure changes over time, and evaluate the hypothesis that over time and subsequent versions of a software application, the implementations of semantically similar features converge. As the features of an application converge in their implementation, wedoi:10.1109/icpc.2007.33 dblp:conf/iwpc/KothariDSM07 fatcat:c3eszy2rmrebpbac5xbnt7zlmu
