Dear developers of the Apache Storm project,
We are MSc students doing research on why builds break in open source projects for the Delft University of Technology. To do this, we are analyzing Travis build statistics and build history of Apache Storm.
By analyzing the build history of Apache Storm, we found the following:
- The project has 70% failing builds in the history
- The project has a very high amount of build failures compared to other projects
When looking at Storm’s build metrics, we could not find clear factors that are highly correlated with this result.
To identify the reasons behind build breakage, we would like to collect developer insights into the reasons why build breakage occurs. If you have five minutes, please answer the survey we have created. Your response will be very useful in our study.
