Co-changes in source code - change periods are usually 20-40 hours....

http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/smr.1635/pdf

The article describes the co-changes in code for a number of open source projects (e.g. ArgoUML).

What is interesting is that they have found that in open source projects the change periods are usually 1/2 - 1 week in duration. This is an interesting finding when mining related changes from software repositories.

Looking forward to industrial evaluation of the tool.
