Software development is a global activity unconstrained by the bounds of time and space. A major effect of this increasing scale and distribution is that the shared understanding that developers previously acquired by formal and informal face-to-face meetings is difficult to obtain. This thesis proposes and evaluates a shared entity model (called CRI) that uses information gathered automatically from developer IDE interactions to make explicit orderings of tasks, artefacts and developers that are relevant to particular work contexts in a distributed software development project. It provides a detailed description of literature related to awareness in collaborative software engineering, a thorough description of the CRI model, and the results of a qualitative empirical evaluation in a realistic development scenario.
