Total Closed Pull Requests

Represents the Pull Requests that are closed.

How to Use It?

  • Monitor Closure Rates: Regularly track the closure rates of Pull Requests to assess the effectiveness of the review and decision-making process.

  • Identify Improvement Areas: Use the data to pinpoint specific reasons for Pull Request closures, such as frequent declines or failures, to target improvements in code quality or review processes.

  • Evaluate Project Health: Assess the number of closed Pull Requests relative to those successfully merged to gauge the overall health and progress of development projects.

Strategic Implementation of Total Closed Pull Requests

  • Review Process Optimization: Analyze the common causes behind Pull Request closures and refine review protocols to reduce unnecessary closures and enhance the approval rate.

  • Feedback Loop Enhancement: Implement a robust feedback system to promptly address the factors leading to Pull Request closures, fostering continuous process improvement.

  • Stakeholder Communication: Keep stakeholders informed about the rates and reasons for Pull Request closures to align expectations and project strategies.

Considerations for Implementation

  • Balanced Metrics Approach: Ensure that the tracking of closed Pull Requests is balanced with positive metrics, such as merge rates, to provide a comprehensive view of the development process.

  • Cultural Sensitivity: Approach the implementation of this metric in a way that encourages learning and improvement rather than penalizing team members for Closed Pull Requests.

  • Continuous Adaptation: Regularly revisit and adjust the strategies based on feedback and changing project requirements to keep the metric relevant and effective.
