Dear Mozilla Developer,

This is DongGyun, an MPhil student at Computer Science & Engineering Department
at the Hong Kong University of Science & Technology (HKUST). 
We are conducting research to understand the code review process. 
Since Mozilla has high quality bug reports, patches, and review results, Mozilla is
our favorite subject for our study. We really appreciate Mozilla developers to open these data.

In the course of our research, we would like to understand main criteria to accept/reject patches. 
Would you like to share your experience and thoughts?

If you were a reviewer, please visit our reviewer survey web page:

For developers, please visit patch writer survey:

Our survey has only 20 questions each, and it won’t take more than 5 min to finish them all. 
Your help will greatly improve our research results.
We also share the survey result with you.
We really appreciate your help.


P.S.: If you have any query about this survey, feel free to send me an email.
