Will the exception analyzer go open-source?

The JetBrains exception analyzer is a feature I had requrested a year or so ago for YouTrack.

I was wondering - before I go off in search of my own implementation. Will you ever open-source that code? I am sure you spent a good amount of effort to try and eliminate duplicates. I'd like to be able to do the same de-duplication in my ErrorReporter extensions.

Any hope, or pehaps I could propose it to other memebers of the community who may be interested in collaborating on someting, or know of a good open-source libraray for identifying related stack traces.

Mostly, I  just need to catch duplicates, but I would like to be able to say - 'update to version X" when a exception is submitted for a something I have already fixed. I used to be able to do this in Fogz Bug, but I have since moved to YouTrack.

We don't have any plans to release the IntelliJ IDEA exception analyzer as open-source, but there's really not so much magic going on there. Our duplicates processing is semi-automated (i.e the tool suggests likely duplicates and a developer accepts one of them or creates a new problem), not fully automated.

Thanks Dmitry,

I figured as much.  I have written an exception analyser for Lua stack traces in World of Warcraft. From that I know that a system can have certain peculiarities in how you assign duplicates that can't always be dealt with by general purpose heuristics. So, it was worth asking at least. It has been a couple years since I last looked at the open source landscape for stack  reporting - perhaps it has advanced enough that there will be  something that meets my needs already.

Thanks!

Jon
