Predictux: A Framework for Predicting Linux Kernel Incremental Release Times
Source: Florida State University
Reliable software systems typically have a version release mechanism that is well organized and documented. This can be drawn upon to predict release timelines, which is helpful in gauging the quality of the software development and maintenance activity. In this paper the authors present initial results from developing and applying Predictux - a decision-tree-based framework to predict release times of Linux kernel versions. The authors compare predictions from the framework with actual data and discuss the future plans for refining Predictux further.
