Software bug repositories contain lot of useful information related to software development, software design and software's common error patterns. Most of the projects use bug tracking system to manage the bugs associated with the software. These bug tracking system works as an online bug repositories, which can be accessed by all of the project members situated at different locations. Researches can also access these online bug repositories for exploring knowledge from them. In order to extract knowledge from software repositories some preprocessing mechanism is required to extract, parse and save the data locally from these online repository. To address this problem an open source multi agent system is proposed in this paper for the preprocessing of online software defect repositories.
