Paper accepted by STVR Journal

We are happy to announce that our paper A New Perspective on the Competent Programmer Hypothesis Through the Reproduction of Real Faults with Repeated Mutations has been recently accepted by the Journal of Software: Testing, Verification and Reliability. Exploring the competent programmer hypothesis, this study examines the connection between mutation testing and real-world faults. By recreating faults through mutation chains, we assess the link's directness. Findings suggest validity of the competent programmer hypothesis yet highlight the need for important mutation operators to generate representative real-world faults.
