ArgoUML uses both CVS and Bugzilla to keep track of bug-fixing activities since 1998. A common practice is to reference source code changes resolving a bug stored in Bugzilla by inserting the id number of the bug in the CVS commit notes. This relationship reveals useful to predict code entities impacted by a new bug report.In this paper we analyze ArgoUML software repositories with a tool, we have implemented, showing what are Bugzilla fields that better predict such impact relationship, that is where knowledge about bug resolution is stored.
