Our research group, SPlabs/UFCG/Brazil (Software Practices Laboratory at the Federal University of Campina Grande, Brazil), has open software evolution as one of its research areas. Currently, we are performing empirical studies on repositories of open software to better understand how open software evolves over time. Among others, we are particularly interested on the subject of software vocabularies and design evolution.Access to SourceForge.net Database for Scholarly Research, therefore, would be an invaluable support to our studies and analysis.
