Warehousing and Studying Open Source Versioning Metadata

Abstract : In this paper, we describe the downloading and warehousing of Open Source Software (OSS) versioning metadata from SourceForge, BerliOS Developer, and GNU Savannah. This data enables and supports research in areas such as software engineering, open source phenomena, social network analysis, data mining, and project management. This newly-formed database containing Concurrent Versions System (CVS) and Subversion (SVN) metadata offers new research opportunities for large-scale OSS development analysis. The CVS and SVN data is juxtaposed with the SourceForge.net Research Data Archive [5] for the purpose of performing more powerful and interesting queries. We also present an initial statistical analysis of some of the most active projects.
