Merge requests with ~"Community contribution" label, opened in projects that are part of the product.
The results include MR type, MR age, MR labels, MR stage, MR group, MR section.
It includes 4 joins of the
gitlab_dotcom_groups_xf table. This is because it is hard to understand the entire hierarchy from the namespace itself. A namespace can be nested within a group of a group of a group, or deeper. So it's important to find the entire hierarchy so we can re-assemble the full URL path of this particular Merge Request.
The end result could be, in the maximum form:
Given that not all MRs have type labels yet, we try to guess the type based on existing labels. In the snippet you can clearly see the 3 types being represented (feature, maintenance, bug).
The snippet also goes to great lengths to find out when a merge request was last active. Given that the state could either be open, merged or closed, it has a different logic for each state to understand what the last active date was. Using this date, it can then be used to understand the amount of days the merge request was or is open for, also known as Merge Request Age.
There are certain authors or MRs that are excluded from the reports as they belong to the GitLab organization and should not be accounted for when looking at our Community MR metrics. If you do see authors that should be excluded, they should be added to this snippet so they can be excluded from the metrics in the future. Example users are the GitLab Bot, Release Bot, Reviewer/Recommender Bot, etc…
product_community_contribution_mrs, but the results include MR lifecycle data (time to triage, time to first review, projected days to merge etc).
