Abstract

The types of awareness relevant to collaborative soft-
ware engineering are identified and an additional type,
"historical awareness" is proposed. This new type of
awareness is the knowledge of how software artefacts re-
sulting from collaboration have evolved in the course of
their development.

The types of awareness that different software engineer-
ing environment architectures can support are discussed. A
way to add awareness support to our existing OSCAR sys-
tem, a component of the GENESIS software engineering
platform, is proposed. Finally ways of instrumenting and
evaluating the awareness support offered by the modified
system are outlined.
