Within the Mining Software Repositories (MSR'06) workshop co-located with the International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE'06) we are organizing the MSR Challenge. We invite researchers or research groups to participate in the MSR Challenge to apply their prototype mining tools on two common case studies that can be seen as OSS mining benchmarks: PostgreSQL and ArgoUML.
The challenge for the mining community is to use one of the case studies and run their tool on it and report on their findings in a short presentation at the workshop. In this way, both the applicability of tools and the level of results obtainable can be shown by the challenge participants. More information about the requirements and possibilities for the MSR Challenge are available on the MSR Challenge webpage.
