I am working on a bug prediction module and the current tests are being done on the source and revisions for eclipse.jdt.core
If I get the build release dates of two particular revisions of Eclipse, how can I get all commits made to eclipse.jdt.core between these dates?

Build date for 3.6 release is 8 June 2010 and for 3.7 is 13 June 2011
Here's what I plan to do:
Using the Python API for Github, get all commits from master branch of eclipse.jdt.core with dates between these two dates. Does this guarantee all commits/changes in eclipse.jdt.core between these releases?

Your strategy should basically work. To be really sure about associating releases with commits you may want to use the corresponding tags like R3_6, R3_6_1 ..., R3_7 ... (see For some time, release builds were not created from master but from branch "integration". Using the tags should protect you against such subtleties.

I don't know about the github API though.

PS: please let us know if you can predict some bugs in JDT/Core Smile
