Abstract: This is an extended abstract of a paper published in the Empirical Software Engineering journal. The original paper is communicated by Arie van Deursen. The paper empirically studied why developers make log changes and proposed an automated approach to provide developers with log change suggestions as soon as they commit a code change. Through a case study on four open source projects, we found that the reasons for log changes can be grouped along four categories: block change, log improvement, dependence-driven change, and logging issue. We also found that our automated approach can effectively suggest whether a log change is needed for a code change with a balanced accuracy of 0.76 to 0.82.
