Dear members of Eclipse,
We are an international team of researchers, from the University of Bari - Italy, Federal University of Pernambuco - Brazil, University of Adelaide - Australia, and Eindhoven University of Technology - the Netherlands. The goal of our research is to improve software documentation and maintainability of open-source projects by providing automatic support of source code comments based on code review discussions. We would like to learn identifying relevant information from code review discussions such that tooling can be developed to improve software documentation and maintainability of open-source projects. Therefore, we would like to talk to open-source developers and interview them.
If you are interested in talking about your experiences as an open-source reviewer then please schedule a meeting with us using YouCanBook.me here: [https://tue-interview.youcanbook.me
]. We are interested in different experiences, therefore, we are looking to talk to people of all age-groups, genders, and people with different roles in open-source projects. So even whether you are a first-time contributor or a senior maintainer don’t hesitate to contact us.
The interview itself will take no longer than 30 min and will be scheduled using Microsoft Teams. We will record the interview and the recording and transcript of the interview will be stored securely, and only made available to the researchers that are involved in this project. Additionally, we plan to use anonymized results of the interview in a scientific publication.
Kind regards and thanks in advance,
Nicole Novielli, University of Bari,
Fernando Castor, Federal University of Pernambuco,
Christoph Treude, University of Adelaide,
Alexander Serebrenik, Eindhoven University of Technology,
