Searching for Information in Software Development Projects Using the Alert System

Searching for Information in Software Development Projects Using the Alert System

This video was recorded at 15th International Multiconference on Information Society, Ljubljana 2012. Large open source projects use several communication channels to exchange information. Examples of these channels are bug tracking systems (BTS), source code management systems, mailing lists, forums and wikis. Since these information sources use different platforms there is no system which would allow users of these communication channels to find information appearing on any of these sources. Developing a system that will support such search functionality is the main goal of a European project called ALERT. In this paper we will introduce the project and describe the search features that can be used by the users of the ALERT system and highlight the advantages that they bring.
