Most software development tools allow developers to subscribe to notifications about code checked-in by their team members in order to review changes to artifacts that they are responsible for. However, past user studies have indicated that this mechanism is counter-productive, as developers spend a significant amount of effort sifting through such feeds looking for items that are relevant to them. We present NeedFeed, a system that models code relevance by mining a project's software… CONTINUE READING
