<p>A graph model of software evolution is presented. The author seeks to formalize the objects and activities involved in software evolution in sufficient detail to enable automatic assistance for maintaining the consistency and integrity of an evolving software system. This includes automated support for propagating the consequences of a change to a software system. The evolution of large and complex software systems receives particular attention.</p>
