JVM-Core Code review report

Greetings everyone,

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 analyzes 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 that a third of the changes happened during a code review in the last year in JVM-core involve documentation issues?

You will find this and more data about your project at the following link:


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 no more than 5 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.

P.s. I apologise if this is not the right place to post something like this.
