A software repository is a special kind of information system maintaining information about one or more software components and supporting a number of controlfunctions. The information may range from software code, to design and requirements specifications, design decisions, test data, software versions and configurations. Control functions may include check-in/check-out facilities, work flow and notification mechanisms and others specifically tailored for software development, evolution, reuse or re-engineering. The purpose of this tutorial is to review the state-of-the-art for software repositories and outline some of the research issues that are currently being addressed in the development and implementation of new software repositories based on ever-more powerful conceptual models and handling efficiently an ever-broader range of control functions.

In particular, the tutorial will cover the following topics:
