Managing Known Clones: Issues and Open Questions

Abstract

Many software systems contained cloned code, i.e., segments of code that
are highly similar to each other, typically because one has been copied
from the other, and then possibly modified. In some contexts, clones are
of interest because they are targets for refactoring. This paper
summarizes the results of a working session in which the problems of merely
managing clones that are already known to exist. Six key issues in the
space are briefly reviewed, and open questions raised in the working
session are listed.
