What is Guttenberg?
Every 60 seconds, Guttenberg fetches the most recent answers (the "targets") on Stack Overflow. For each of these answers, possibly related posts (for example answers to related questions) are collected. All those posts will be checked for different characteristics (such as the Jaro-Winkler distance of the posts). If at least one of the characteristics meets the requirements, a message like this will be posted in chat:
The feedback (
f/fp) will be stored on CopyPastor, where you can also compare the target and the original.
We are already collecting data with CopyPastor to provide statistics, but since there are not that many posts to report, it will take a while until we have enough data. (approximately 6-8 weeks)
Special feature for moderators on Stack Overflow
In one of the latest releases, Petter Friberg has implemented the checkuser-command, which is available for moderators and room-owners. It checks all posts of a given user for plagiarism. In addition to the usual check via linked/related-posts, this command uses Google to find other sources where the user might have copied code or text. (we have a limited quota of 100 requests/day)
Every GitHub release/tag will be automatically deployed to my server and Guttenberg reboots for the update.
Current version: 1.0.0
