Percentage of team members involved in PR reviews. A high involvement percentage (>80%) is indicative of a self-sufficient team where majority of the team knows the code base. For teams with new members or a designated reviewer, the involvement metric would be lower.


Computation of the metric

  1. PRs within specified project/team are gathered.
  2. Participation of each reviewer in PRs determined based on reviewer involvement, these include actions like commenting, approving, suggesting changes, or being listed as a reviewer.
  3. Reviewer involvement percentage is calculated by dividing their participated PRs by total PRs within the defined set.
