Subject Re: Is it possible for reviewer to add other reviewers in the reviewboard?
Date Thu, 18 Jul 2013 17:00:48 GMT
We need some mechanism to help on review board. Sometime the people didn't
know who to ask for review and sometime committer push the code they didn't
familiar with.

I decided to spend much more time on reviewing code during 4.2 release
period, trying to make sure I would review everything on network part, and
also change reviewer(potentially follow up) to ensure the expert on the
certain area has a chance to take a look at the code before the patch
checked in.

Let's see how it would go...
