Making Pull Requests Evaluation A Good Experience

Dear ROS community,

Few months ago, I asked your participation in a survey to determine what would make a good PR evaluation process. Sorry, for the delay (it takes significant time and effort to analyze qualitative data). Now, the results are ready and I’m happy to discuss further.

I attached the slides with the results of the study.

Perhaps it was intentionally out of scope, but I think it would be interesting to hear about the “bad practices.” Kind of similar to how antipatterns can help developers identify bad ideas, explicitly laying it out could be helpful.

Good point. We looked for the positive behavior as our scope was to identify the “good experience.” But your suggestion makes a good topic for future study.

Is the raw data available? I am also starting to wonder, with all the surveys coming out, if we should create a repo with a summary markdown document pointing people to the results, and collecting all the datasets. If I did this would you be willing to contribute?

Yes, definitely! Good idea. I suggest that the dataset should be anonymized.

Oh totally. I don’t want people’s PII on the internet. I think on average there are at least two surveys running at any given time. It would help to have a centralized place where we keep ROS community data. It might also give people a place to look before they fire off a survey for data that already exists.
