The following paper describes a framework for a software engineering process evaluation based on source code changes. The main aspect is to collect the complete source code during every compile step. A detailed analysis of each change of the source code allows a categorization of the type of change. This can be regarded as atomic actions containing especially the problems that occurred during the development. Initial results collected during a software experiment are analyzed and five hypothesis are discussed.
