Open source software teams routinely develop complex
software products in frequent-release settings with rather
lightweight processes and project documentation. In this context
project a major challenge for data collection is how to
extract the relevant project management knowledge effectively
and efficiently from a wide range of software project data
sources, such as artifact versions, bug reports, and discussion
forums. In this paper we introduce a framework and tool support
for the semantic integration of data from a variety of data
sources to facilitate efficient data collection, even in projects
with frequent iterations. Based on data from real-world use
cases in open source projects we compare the efficiency of the
proposed framework with a traditional data warehouse approach.
Major result is that the proposed approach can make
data collection for project monitoring about 30% - 50% more
efficient, in particular, in contexts where heterogeneous data
sources change during the project.
