Charla: "Software Heritage: why and how we are building the universal software archive"



From ten years of working on analysing the characteristics of large open source software repositories, we draw some lessons on the key properties we need for this kind of software engineering large scale studies. This led us to launching Software Heritage, the most ambitious project to date to build a universal source code software knowledge base. We will discuss the new challenges, both organisational and scientific, that Software Heritage brings up, and see how they open the way to new and exciting collaboration opportunities.
