Mozkito is a general purpose framework that allows developers and data miners to effectively mine their own software archives without writing the same mining scripts over and over again.
Mozkito is not a full-fledged mining tool that supports everything out of the box. Instead, our goal is to provide a uniform platform for many state-of-the-art mining version archive approaches and techniques. Its modular architecture allows easy extension and improvement for users, miners, and researchers. With Mozkito, we explicitly target researchers by providing a tool set of standard mining techniques and efforts but also provide a platform that allows them to make newly developed (and maybe published) mining approaches reproducible.

These citations express our motivation to develop and use Mozkito as mining framework. Using Mozkito provides the opportunity to share data sets and source code of approaches and allows replicated studies—even if the data sets cannot be published.
