I hope you had the chance to look at our report and found it interesting.
Our goal is to create a Code Review Analytics tool to give the developers and project managers a better idea of what is really going on inside the code review process.
This could lead to further improve it, optimising the effort that the developers spent on it. For instance, reducing the number of documentation changes might allow a reviewer to allocate more time on finding functional defects.
Another possible application might be to help optimising the allocation of the developers to a particular review.
Here is a link to the report:
I would like to keep improving our tool adding more and more actionable information. This is just the first step, so I am interested in hearing your feedback so I could keep improving it.
Please, consider to help me by answering the survey attached to the report if you think is information are useful or might be useful in the future with the next steps we would like to take in improving the tool.
Thank you very much.
Dear Tycho developers,
I am Enrico, a researcher at the University of Zurich and I am studying how to evaluate the code review process to understand how it could be improved.
I created a tool that analyses the changes that happen during a review on Gerrit, to measure the effects of code review on code and understand which kinds changes reviewers pay attention to.
For example, are you aware that more than a third of the changes happened during a code review in the last year in your project involve documentation issues?
Our goal is to give developers insight on what really happens during the code review process to check if this matches their expectations or if the process can be improved (e.g. improving the way in which reviewers are chosen, revising the code review policies and so on.)
You will more data about your project at the following link:https://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/5172968/Code-review-changes-report-Tycho
The link contains the report and some questions we would like to ask you about it. The report is designed in a way that you don't have to answer the questions (if you just want to look at the report), but it would be great if we could know what you think about our tool/report
. Answering will take you 5/10 minutes.
If you have any question about the report or our research, please don't hesitate to contact me.
Thank you very much for your time and sorry for bothering you.
