Within the early 17th century, the result of whatever so simple as a cube roll was once consigned to the world of unknowable probability. Mathematicians principally agreed that it was once most unlikely to foretell the likelihood of an prevalence. Then, in 1654, Blaise Pascal wrote to Pierre de Fermat explaining that he had found the right way to calculate hazard.

Example text

The reason for this might be the fact that more than 80% of the commits were performed by the same author, which causes a huge bias compared to the other projects. Therefore Tomcat is an atypical project from this respect. 3 Discussion For proper interpretation of the above results we address some possible misinterpretations. One could simplify the method as follows: the more people work on a system, the more complex it will be, and the more complex a systems is, the harder to maintain it. We consider this relationship as already known and did not even check it.

A possible IDE plug-in, which indicates the risk of decreasing the maintainability of the source code, could help the architect and warn the developers. Keywords: Code ownership ability · Wilcoxon test 1 · ISO/IEC 25010 · Source code maintain- Introduction Software quality plays a crucial role in modern development projects. Maintainability is one of the six sub-characteristics of software quality, as defined originally in the ISO/IEC 9126 standard [14]. Software maintenance consumes huge efforts: based on the experiences, at least half of the total amount of software development costs are spent on this activity.

16 C. Farag´ o et al. Now we highlight the limitations of the results. It would be an inappropriate interpretation that the quality of the code with clear ownership increases, and the quality of common code decreases. There are quality decreases in the sources with clear ownership, and quality increases even in the hottest code areas. The presented results are much more modest, but significant. Regarding the strength of the results, we stress that the 4 analyzed systems have been fixed before the case study.
