Version Control in Online Software Repositories
Watkins, E Rowland and Nicole, Denis A, Arabnia, Hamid R and Reza, Hassan (eds.) (2005) Version Control in Online Software Repositories. Proceedings of the 2005 International Conference on Software Engineering Research and Practice, II, 550-556.
Software version control repositories provide a uniform and stable interface to manage documents and their version histories. Unfortunately, Open Source systems, for example, CVS, Subversion, and GNU Arch are not well suited to highly collaborative environments and fail to track semantic changes in repositories. We introduce document provenance as our Description Logic framework to track the semantic changes in software repositories and draw interesting results about their historic behaviour using a rule-based inference engine. To support the use of this framework, we have developed our own online collaborative tool, leveraging the fluency of the modern WikiWikiWeb.
