Automated Program Repair(APR) is a rapidly developing technology that can assist developers to fix errors in software systems. An essential part of any scientific work is a fair and comprehensive evaluation of the state-of-the-art techniques. Unfortunately for program repair tools, at present there is no publicly available standard mechanism to perform comparisons. In this paper, we propose such a standardization in the form of an competition to foster comparability, advancing the state-of-the-art capabilities and to pave the path for the next-generation repair technology.
