A Technique to Link Bug and Commit Report based on Commit History
Chae, Youngjae; Lee, Eunjoo;
 
 Abstract
'Commit-bug link', the link between commit history and bug reports, is used for software maintenance and defect prediction in bug tracking systems. Previous studies have shown that the links are automatically detected based on text similarity, time interval, and keyword. Existing approaches depend on the quality of commit history and could thus miss several links. In this paper, we proposed a technique to link commit and bug report using not only messages of commit history, but also the similarity of files in the commit history coupled with bug reports. The experimental results demonstrated the applicability of the suggested approach.
