You are looking at the user documentation for the most recent
master branch of RepoSense (not released to the public yet). The documentation for the latest public release is here.
A: RepoSense will first clone the git repository to be analyzed; thus, if you do not have access to the repository, we cannot run the analysis.
To enable RepoSense to work on private repositories, ensure that you have enabled access to your private repository in your git terminal first before running the analysis.
A: Formats are the file extensions, which is the suffix at the end of a filename that indicates what type of file it is.
The formats/file extensions to be analyzed by RepoSense can be specified through the standalone config file, repo-config file, and command line.
A: Glob is the pattern to specify a set of filenames with wildcard characters. Ignore glob list is the list of patterns to specify all the files in the repository which should be ignored from analysis.
The ignore glob list can be specified through the standalone config file, repo-config file, and author-config file.
