In reply to: Code as a Crime Scene

This post describes an interesting approach to using git commit history and metadata to help guide code maintenance. Essentially, when you look at statistics on commits to see which files get updated at the same time, you can begin to get a sense for the logical coupling of the different parts of an application.

I think there is something to be inferred from this with regards to the ability to weaponize/exploit this metadata from git, too…but I’m still noodling on the exact details.
