GitHub introduced GitHub Actions, a feature providing automated workflows for repository maintainers . Our research is the first to investigate how developers use Actions and how several activityindicators change after their adoption . Our results indicate that although only a small subset of repositories adopted GitHub Actions to date, there is a positive perception of the technology . Our findings also indicate that theadoption of GitHub Actions increases the number of monthly rejected pull requests and decreases the monthly number of commits on merged pull requests . These results are especially relevant for practitioners to understand and prevent undesirable effects on their projects, such as the impact of adopting such kind of technology is important for planning and management, say the authors of the study .
