We are proud to anounce that our paper introducing the Open Source python package git2net received a Special MSR Mention at the 16th International Conference on Mining Software Repositories (MSR) 2019 in Montreal, QC, Canada.

With git2net we introduce an Open Source tool that facilitates the scalable extraction of time-stamped co-editing relationships between developers in large git-based software repositories.

The Special MSR Mention is part of the MSR FOSS award given to papers that show outstanding contributions to the Free Open Source Software (FOSS) community (source). With this Special MSR Mention, the FOSS community recognises the potential of git2net to allow projects to gain knowledge on their own important aspects (source).
We further anticipate git2net to be of great value for scientists studying the development of git-based software projects.

You can install and use git2net for your own research today via

pip install git2net

The preprint of our paper is available on arXiv.org. Check out the reproducibility package with tutorial to learn how to get started analysing your own repositories. To contribute to the future development of git2net visit our repository on GitHub.
