Number of Open Pull Requests

What is Number of Open Pull Requests?

Pull requests are based on user stories. More specifically, they should be broken down into single needs that a user can have on the platform. The smaller and more accurate they are, the easier it will be for the project maintainer to review and merge them into the upstream repository. In general terms, a pull request is considered the final task in a developer workflow. This KPI counts the number of these requests that have been already seen by the project manager.

The quality of a pull request is usually a good indicator of the development team’s efficiency. Therefore, the best version of this request is considered to be short, frequent and easy to decide whether it’s accepted or rejected.

However, there are certain differences in the treatment of this KPI. For instance, depending on the software, pull requests are considered to be tickets. Moreover, each project has a different approach to the process that takes place from sending the request to actually applying it.
