The findings indicate that “Just-In-Time Quality Assurance” may provide an effort-reducing way to focus on the most risky changes and thus reduce the costs of developing high-quality software.
Are Bullies More Productive? Empirical Study of Affectiveness vs. Issue Fixing Time

It is found that the happier developers are (expressing emotions such as JOY and LOVE in their comments), the shorter the issue fixing time is likely to be, and negative emotions, such as SADNESS, are linked with longerissue fixing time.
The impact of code review coverage and code review participation on software quality: a case study of the qt, VTK, and ITK projects
The results empirically confirm the intuition that poorly reviewed code has a negative impact on software quality in large systems using modern reviewing tools.
Will my patch make it? And how fast? Case study on the Linux kernel

- 18 May 2013
This paper crosslinks and analyzes eight years of patch reviews from the kernel mailing lists and committed patches from the Git repository to understand which patches are accepted and how long it takes those patches to get to the end user.

This paper manually labeled 2,000 issue comments and 4,000 sen-tences written by developers with emotions such as love,joy, surprise, anger, sadness and fear, allowing the investigation of the role of affects in software development.
Do faster releases improve software quality? An empirical case study of Mozilla Firefox

- 2 June 2012
It is found that with shorter release cycles, users do not experience significantly more post-release bugs and bugs are fixed faster, yet users experience these bugs earlier during software execution (the program crashes earlier).
Do developers feel emotions? an exploratory analysis of emotions in software artifacts
This study analyzes whether development artifacts like issue reports carry any emotional information about software development, a first step towards verifying the feasibility of an automatic tool for emotion mining in software development artifacts.
On rapid releases and software testing: a case study and a semi-systematic literature review
- M. Mäntylä, B. Adams, F. Khomh, Emelie Engström, K. Petersen

The changes in software testing effort after moving to rapid releases is investigated in the context of a case study on Mozilla Firefox, and a semi-systematic literature review shows that rapid releases are a prevalent industrial practice that are utilized even in some highly critical domains of software engineering.
An empirical study of the impact of modern code review practices on software quality

Through a case study of the Qt, VTK, and ITK projects, it is found that code review coverage, participation, and expertise share a significant link with software quality.
Energy Profiles of Java Collections Classes
