The forgotten case of the dependency bugs: on the example of the robot operating system
Research output: Journal Article or Conference Article in Journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
The paper presents a definition and a taxonomy of dependency bugs extracted from data. It describes multiple facets of these bugs and estimates that as many as 15% (!) of all reported bugs are dependency bugs. We show that lightweight tools can find dependency bugs efficiently, although it is challenging to decide which tools to build and difficult to build general tools. We present the research problem to the community, and posit that it should be feasible to eradicate it from software development practice.
