Over the past fifteen years, research on automated program repair has matured, and transitions to industry have begun. However, an impediment to wider adoption is concern over automatically generated patch correctness. A review of 250 program repair research papers suggests that this concern can be addressed by adapting practices from modern code review, such as multiple anonymized reviews and checklists with well-defined terminology, to better evaluate the correctness and acceptability of plausible patches. Adopting such practices for automated program repair can increase developer trust, paving the way for wider industrial deployments.
