Our paper "The shape of feature code: an analysis of twenty C-preprocessor-based systems" is now published online at the Software & Systems Modeling Journal

In this paper, we perform a statistical analysis of three feature-annotation metrics (e.g., scattering degree) applied to a corpus of 20 open-source systems. In particular, we investigate the distribution shape of our target metrics and extract thresholds (limits) that could be used by practitioners to control the evolution of feature annotations in their own evolving systems.
