Abstract

A software developer joining a large software project faces a steep learning curve before they are able to make real contributions. One challenge is finding the subject matter experts who can answer questions about a specific area of the software or to review changes. This is especially true of large projects with many modules and a large number of authors. In this paper, we describe a method to model a software project as a network using information mined from the project
