PROJECT TITLE :
Rapid Releases and Patch Backouts: A Software Analytics Approach
Mozilla's call to release a brand new version of its product every six weeks (instead of each year) profoundly affected developers and users and was accompanied by important changes in the release process. Were such changes enough to allow Mozilla to maneuver faster without breaking things? What lessons will be learned from Mozilla's adoption of fast releases? To answer these questions, researchers analyzed tens of thousands of commits and bug reports from Firefox and talked to its developers. The results show that, as a result of of integration repositories, build sheriffs, and higher testing tools, broken patches were backed out (reverted) earlier, rendering the discharge method a lot of stable.
