At SonarSource, we want to help developers improve Code Quality and Security by committing only clean and safe code to their repositories. That’s why we put the emphasis on the New Code inside our products.
We are currently exploring new ways of defining code we consider being new. And you can get involved here! Please let us know what you think of the options we’re considering.
If you’d like to help, you can complete a short survey, it should take you just 2 minutes. We will leave it open until August 27th.
Thank you for this survey! I’ve advocated for improvements to this since the changes introduced in SonarQube 8.x, so I’ve shared the survey to some relevant topic threads and will respond myself soon. Even if the survey is more for SonarCloud at first, hopefully there’s a path towards getting any compatible improvements into the next LTS or major version of SonarQube as well.
