This technical report introduces a novel approach to enabling analytical processing of project data. The approach exploits source code repositories for information about project evolution. Furthermore this technical report proposes a new perspective on analyzing version control data. It takes up a process-centric viewpoint, addresses related analysis problems like collaboration of programmers and proposes metrics for them. The research has yielded an implementation of the approach, which comprises visualizations that assist in examining the evolution of software process.
