Open source projects often provide documentation such as user manual, FAQ pages, mailing lists to help users better understand and use open source software. Among these documentations, mailing lists contains a wealth of software QA information. However, because of the huge number of emails and its complex organization of email content, the emails cannot be easily read and navigated.
The goal of this tool is automatically extract QA information from the mail conversations in open source software’s mailing list. The tool can:
1: Collect mail archives from open source project’s home page, analyze the archives and convert them to email conversations.
2: Implement a parse based email content classifier to do email’s content classification.
3: Extract answer information from email and choose the best answer to the user.
