Dear Opendev administrators,

I am Moataz Chouchen a Phd Student in Ets Montréal under the supervision of Professor Ali Ouni.
I am sending this email to you to explain my requests of the Opendev data to respond to your request regarding Opendev code review data crawling.

In fact, my Phd subject consists of the identification, the localization, and the understanding of Modern Code Review (MCR) problems (also called antipatterns). For this purpose, we need to crawl code review data from different projects (including Opendev) since this data will help us to study the process of MCR in these projects and their associated anti-patterns. Specifically, we need the whole data of Opendev to perform data analysis methods on them (including code review metrics distributions, social graph analysis etc) and study them in more depth. For this reason, we created a script to crawl data from Opendev and use them in our empirical study on MCR antipatterns in Opendev.

I would like to thank you for your interest to understand the issues behind our requests and your intention to solve the issue for both sides. I am looking forward to collaborating with you and I would like to know if there are any rules that I should follow when requesting data from your servers and I will be more than happy If you can help me crawling the data and provide an access for me. I am also at your disposal for further clarifications regarding the requests. I hope I hear from you soon.

Thank you
Please stay safe,
