Fabio Calefato, Filippo Lanubile, Nicole Novielli
2017 2017 IEEE 12th International Conference on Global Software Engineering (ICGSE)  
While previous research has focused on how to build and spread trust in absence of direct, face-to-face communication, it has overlooked the effects of the propensity to trust, i.e., the trait of personality  ...  In this study, we present a preliminary, quantitative analysis on how the propensity to trust affects the success of collaborations in a distributed project, where the success is represented by pull requests  ...  This work is partially funded by the project 'Investigating the Role of Emotions in Online Question & Answer Sites' under the program "Scientific Independence of young Researchers" (SIR), funded by the  ...

How do you propose your code changes? Empirical Analysis of Affect Metrics of Pull Requests on GitHub

Marco Ortu, Giuseppe Destefanis, Daniel Graziotin, Michele Marchesi, Roberto Tonelli
2020 IEEE Access  
Pull requests include chunks of source code, history of changes, log messages around a proposed change of the mainstream codebase, and much discussion on whether to integrate such changes or not.  ...  We built a model to understand whether the affect and the politeness have an impact on the chance of issues and pull requests to be merged-i.e., the code which fixes the issue is integrated in the codebase  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENT The authors are thankful to Katharina Plett for proofreading the paper.  ...
