Abstract: The development process for a given software system is acombination of an idealized, prescribed model and a messy set of ad hoc practices.  To some degree, process compliance can be enforced by supporting tools that require various steps be followed in order; however, this approach is often perceived as heavyweight and inflexible by developers, who generally prefer that tools support their desired work habits rather than limit their choices.  An alternative approach to monitoring process compliance is to instrument the various tools and repositories that developers use — such as source control systems, bug-trackers, and mailing-list archives — and to build models of the de facto development process through observation, analysis, and inference.  In this talk, we present a technique for recovering a project’s software development processes from a variety of existing artifacts.  We first apply unsupervised and supervised techniques — including word-bags, topic analysis, summary statistics, and Bayesian classifiers — to annotate software artifacts by related topics, maintenance types, and non-functional requirements.  We map the analysis results onto a time-line Unified Process development model, which we call Recovered
Unified Process Views.  We demonstrate our approach for
extracting these process views from two case studies: FreeBSD and SQLite.
