Subject: [Development] Code Review of Build File Changes

Hi Developers,

I’m Mattie, a Ph.D. student at the University of Waterloo and I’ve been studying the code review process of build files in Qt. For example, I’ve found that changes to build files are 2 to 4 times less likely to be discussed during code review than changes to source code or test files.

As the next step in our study, we are recruiting developers for a 30-minute interview to help us shed light on:

1. How build changes are reviewed?

2. What are the challenges faced when reviewing build changes?

3. Why is build change review different?

Since the Qt review is featured in our analysis, we would appreciate it if you consider participating as an interviewee. If you are interested, please click the signup link below and follow the instructions. Once the study is concluded, we will share our findings with the Qt community first.
