"CVSSearch searches for code fragments using CVS comments.
Specifically, it takes advantage of the fact that a CVS comment
describes the lines of code involved in the commit and that this
description will typically hold for many future versions."
"In other words, CVSSearch allows you to better search the most
recent version of the code by looking at previous versions to
understand the current version."
"For each line of code, we build a profile consisting of all CVS
comments that involved that line in past commits. This profile is
used not only to search code but also to understand what the code
"Observe that CVS comments describe the purpose of code and ---
unlike code comments --- provide motivation and history for why
that code is the way it is."
