Hi there! In our first article we showed how many pull requests were closed this year on 50 known organizations and projects, and we looked into the duration of those pull requests.
For our second article, we decided to do a deep dive into the merged pull requests from 283 034 starred public projects.
At Explore.dev we are continuously testing semantic code reviews with Github’s Pull Requests from our internal projects and public repositories. To get a representative set of organizations and repositories to test, in the past weeks we started looking into a systematic way to sense the public activity on pull requests.
We think that some of these results could be interesting to the community so we decided to share them in a series of weekly posts. Our main intention is to share the data without too much interpretation — we know that different teams and organizations have different working methodologies and we don’t intend to categorize them in any way.
For our first post, we will look into the duration of pull requests which is something we were always curious about.
