FLOSSMetrics presented at FOSDEM 2009

by xavier last modified 2009-12-11 11:40

FLOSSMetrics is collecting data from the CVS/SVN repository, mailing lists and issue tracking systems of several thousands of FOSS projects, and collecting all of it into a database that is offered to researchers and others for data mining.

The talk will show the main results of the FLOSSMetrics project. In particular, it will show how to obtain data about the history of software development of more than 2,000 FLOSS projects, which kind of data it is and how it can be used, and some results of using it in a research environment.

The FLOSSMetrics database itself is publicly available in Melquiades (, a website designed with the objective of making more accessible the data generated by the project to researchers and other end­users.

FOSDEM will take place in Brussels, Belgium on February 7 to 8, 2009
