Open source development projects typically support an open bug repository to which both developers and users can report bugs. The reports that appear in this repository must be triaged to determine if the report is one which requires attention and if it is, which developer will be assigned the responsibility of resolving the report. Large open source(More)
An open source project typically maintains an open bug repository so that bug reports from all over the world can be gathered. When a new bug report is submitted to the repository, a person, called a triager, examines whether it is a duplicate of an existing bug report. If it is, the triager marks it as DUPLICATE and the bug report is removed from(More)
MOTIVATION Identifying the destination or localization of proteins is key to understanding their function and facilitating their purification. A number of existing computational prediction methods are based on sequence analysis. However, these methods are limited in scope, accuracy and most particularly breadth of coverage. Rather than using sequence(More)
A key collaborative hub for many software development projects is the bug report repository. Although its use can improve the software development process in a number of ways, reports added to the repository need to be triaged. A triager determines if a report is meaningful. Meaningful reports are then organized for integration into the project's(More)
Most open source software development projects include an open bug repository---one to which users of the software can gain full access---that is used to report and track problems with, and potential enhancements to, the software system. There are several potential advantages to the use of an open bug repository: more problems with the system might be(More)
Proteome Analyst (PA) (http://www.cs.ualberta.ca/~bioinfo/PA/) is a publicly available, high-throughput, web-based system for predicting various properties of each protein in an entire proteome. Using machine-learned classifiers, PA can predict, for example, the GeneQuiz general function and Gene Ontology (GO) molecular function of a protein. In addition,(More)
As developers work on a software product they accumulate expertise, including expertise about the code base of the software product. We call this type of expertise "implementation expertise'. Knowing the set of developers who have implementation expertise for a software product has many important uses. This paper presents an empirical evaluation of two(More)
Object-oriented programming, design patterns, and frameworks are abstraction techniques that have been used to reduce the complexity of sequential programming. This paper describes our approach of applying these techniques to the more difficult domain of parallel programming. We combine these three abstraction techniques with a fourth kind of abstraction,(More)
Object-oriented programming, design patterns, and frameworks are common techniques that have been used to reduce the complexity of sequential programming. We have applied these techniques to the more difficult domain of parallel programming. This paper describes CO2P3S, a pattern-based parallel programming system that generates parallel programs from(More)
A design pattern encapsulates the knowledge of object-oriented designers into re-usable artifacts. A design pattern is a descriptive device that fosters software design re-use. There are several reasons why design patterns are not used as generative constructs that support code re-use. The first reason is that design patterns describe a set of solutions to(More)
