This invention deals with providing a better user experience for debugging code by hinting at where bugs are most likely. Hints will be based on the code metrics as well as other metadata about code. Metadata about the code include the checkin history of it as well as the past bug reports. One of the most interesting example of this metadata is the author of the code.
