In this experience report we present SAW-BOT, a bot proposing fixes for static analysis warnings. The bot has been evaluated with five professional software developers by means of a Wizard of Oz experiment, semi-structured interviews and the mTAM questionnaire. We have observed that developers prefer GitHub suggestions to two baseline operation modes. Our study indicates that GitHub suggestions are a viable mechanism for implementing bots proposing fixes for static analysis warnings.
