Subject Re: PR merge policy
Date Fri, 24 Mar 2017 18:42:03 GMT
For the PR part with multiple reviewers, I suggest we pick a convention
like the main reviewer has to wait till all the other reviewers say
something like LGTM or a timeout period like 2 days before merging it. This
will remove ambiguity, especially in cases where reviewers come in
later after review has been happening for a while and it is unclear whether
they have started the review and will have more comments or are just are
making singular comments. We, of course, do not want to encourage the
behavior and would prefer interested folks join the review process early
but in reality, these situations happen.
