  24. GNOME Shell Official Extensions 2955 LOC Javascript, 92 CSS 15

    extensions 219 commits, 52 authors From 2011-01-12 18:07:35 to 2011-10-12 03:51:57 Be careful: GNOME Shell is not API stable Alvaro del Castillo (Bitergia) GNOME Shell Evolution Jul 30, 2012 24 / 28
  25. Bitergia’s Kitchen What projects to analyse? Location of Information Sources.

    Supported sources. Understanding the project: Tech and Community Gathering the data. Banned and other issues. Analysing the data: SQL, R and graphs. Data in JSON. Static and Dynamic reports Publication and Dissemination Alvaro del Castillo (Bitergia) GNOME Shell Evolution Jul 30, 2012 25 / 28
  26. Bitergia’s Kitchen SWScopio http://bitergia.com/public/reports/generic/ swscopio/swscopio.html Multigraph Reports http://bitergia.com/public/reports/ generic/companies/companies.html Integration

    with Allura http://allura.bitergia.net: 8080/p/joomla/metrics/open_closed/ Demos and tech internals. Alvaro del Castillo (Bitergia) GNOME Shell Evolution Jul 30, 2012 26 / 28
  27. In summary FLOSS development repositories have a wealth of information

    Their analysis is potentially interested to any stakeholder Getting the data out of the repository is not that difficult... ...but analysis may be We’re interested in deep analysis We’re interested in working with developers Which aspects of your project would you like to know? Alvaro del Castillo (Bitergia) GNOME Shell Evolution Jul 30, 2012 27 / 28
  28. Help wanted: validation of bug seeding detection Validation of methodologies

    for detecting bug seeding Which lines introduced a bug? Several techniques... ...which need real developers for validation How to validate? Let a real developer determine if a certain code is involved in seeding a bug or not Potential benefits: Learn from your errors (personally, or as a project) Performance metrics Bug seeding evolution Bug seeding patterns Bug seeding bad smells If you would want to collaborate in this, let me know!
