I am writing as part of my master thesis work an analysis of developers' work. I am looking for a new parameters to be consumed in Topological Data Analysis process. I would like to compare a similarities of changes made through two different commits. I can gather a commit message of these commits and differences in the source code. However, I don't know how good to count such similarity. I am considering to put message and text differences from source code into DBPedia Spotlight and count cosine similarity from the result annotations. Would you have some better idea of how to proceed it?

  • $\begingroup$ What does the repository contain? What type of data? $\endgroup$ – Marcin Aug 24 '18 at 12:45
  • $\begingroup$ It contains commit Title, list of files changed (with possibly specified programming language) and set of text changes (deletions and additions) made through this commit. $\endgroup$ – MKMZ Aug 25 '18 at 13:39
