Debsources: Live and Historical Views on Macro-Level Software Evolution
The paper entitled Debsources: Live and Historical Views on Macro-Level Software Evolution, which I've co-authored with Matthieu Caneill, has been accepted at ESEM 2014: the 8th international symposium on Emprical Software Engineering and Measurement.
In the paper we have described Debsources as a software platform for monitoring the evolution of Free Software through the lenses of Debian, and used the main Debsources instance (http://sources.debian.net) to replicate and extend a former study on macro-level software evolution.
Now we "just" have to integrate all the nice charts and data we
have extracted for the paper into Debsources' stats page...
