HiCoV: Managing the version space

  • Bjørn P. Munch
Version Space Management
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 1167)


This paper presents HiCoV, high-level extensions to our Change Oriented Versioning model (CoV), which will reduce the inherent complexity of selecting versions based on this model. Thus, we hope to eliminate the largest obstacle to making CoV practically usable.
