Subject [jira] [Closed] (INFRA-4724) access to bugs data for research study
Date Mon, 30 Apr 2012 08:15:44 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-4724?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Tony Stevenson closed INFRA-4724.

    Resolution: Fixed


There is no easy way for us to extract single project data for you, making sure we do not
include private (i.e. security related issues). 

It will be far easier for you to continue with your current model.  

Please note that we automatically ban IP addresses that make too many connections in quick
succession (I am thinking more about you copying data from the svn repos).

> I am a PhD student at DERI, NUI Galway, Ireland. My main area of research is in investigating
social and socio-technical relationship among developers in open source projects. For my research,
i am extracting information from various software repositories (source code, mailing list
archives, bug tracking systems etc.) of open source projects. As part of this study, i have
selected 20 different Apache projects. While downloading the project's bug data in XML format
from the JIRA issue tracker i have found that i can not download more than 1000 bugs for a
particular project [1][2]. I reckon that the policy must be implemented for certain reason.
> I would highly appreciate if there is a way to opt out the limit in downloading bugs
data from JIRA or if it can be provided in terms of database or file dumps. We are looking
into it in order to carryout our research and has no intensions on sharing the data to any
third parties or for commercial purposes. Your cooperation is highly appreciated.
