In recent years, many researchers in the SE community have been devoting considerable efforts to provide FLOSS developers with a means to quickly find and fix various kinds of bugs in FLOSS products such as security and performance bugs. However, it is not exactly sure how FLOSS developers think about bugs to be removed preferentially. Without a full understanding of FLOSS developers’ perceptions of bug finding and fixing, researchers’ efforts might remain far away from FLOSS developers’ needs. In this study, we interview 322 notable GitHub developers about high impact bugs to understand FLOSS developers’ needs for bug finding and fixing, and we manually inspect and classify developers’ answers (bugs) by symptoms and root causes of bugs. As a result, we show that security and breakage bugs are highly crucial for FLOSS developers. We also identify what kinds of high impact bugs should be studied newly by the SE community to help FLOSS developers.
