Mining Software Repositories (MSR) research had significantly contributed to software engineering. However, MSR results integration across repositories is a recent concern that is getting more attention from researchers each day. Some noticeable research in this sense is related to the approximation between MSR and semantic web, specially linked data approaches which makes it possible to integrate repositories and mined results. Manifested that way, the authors believe that current research is not fully addressing the practical integration of MSR results, specially, in software engineering due to not considering that these results needs to be integrated to the tools as assistance to activity performers, as a kind of decision making support.
