CGUs Experiments

Experiments are ongoing so as to produce use cases using CGUs data. To this end, two tools are currently under development : a script allowing to generate a dataset from a CGUs versions repository, and a python library easing the exploration process for these data.

Dataset

A first dataset has been published here and contains the version history of all tracked CGUs. The CGUs-stats tool can help programatically explore these data.

Stats

Descriptive statistics have also been generated for each tracked service as well as document type.
