The Mining Software Repositories (MSR) is an attractive research field that has tons of research topics. It is great fun for a researcher to mine new research goals from software repositories. The MSR field has been grown up with OSS communities, as researchers have mined repositories of various open source software (OSS) projects until now. In this paper we introduce fun of the MSR field as well as its typical research topics, example of mining and future directions.
