Due to the unavoidable bugs appearing in the most of the software systems, bug resolution has become one of the most important activities in software maintenance. For large-scale software programs, developers usually depend on bug reports to fix the given bugs. When a new bug is reported, a triager has to complete two important tasks that include severity identification and fixer assignment. The purpose of severity identification is to decide how quickly the bug report should be addressed while… CONTINUE READING
