Felix Hubfeld (hubfeld at zib de) on statcvs-devel:

Inspired from an article in the latest CACM, it think it
would be very cool if statcvs would have defect
statistics.

Mainly, number of bug(-fixes) per LOC and timespan and
LOC per bugfix (bug complexity) shouldn't be too hard to
add. From the user perspective, adding a keyword like
BUGFIX to the CVS comment would be sufficient to
trigger it.

    This is a great idea. We've used cvswrappers to require
    something like 'BUGFIX' to tie CVS to specific problem reports
    our problem tracking system, so this would be no impact to our
    development team. I suspect that's the case on most
    serious/highly managed development projects.

    Another stat that could be tracked is fault density (bug[-fixes] per
    module). I am sure there are others.
