Variability management of a product family is the core aspect of Software Product Line Engineering. The adoption of this mature approach requires a high upfront investment before being able to automatically generate product instances based on customer requirements. However, this adoption costs and risks could be reduced with an incremental approach, which mines existing assets and then transitions to full product line engineering. Those existing assets can be for instance similar product variants that were implemented using ad-hoc reuse techniques such as clone-and-own. Bottom-up approaches to automatically extract variability management related artifacts could be proposed, applied, validated and improved in this domain therefore the REVE workshop aims to fill the gap between the Reengineering and Software Product Line Engineering communities.
