Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Using Pull Requests over Review Board
Date Wed, 14 Jun 2017 15:57:50 GMT
I have to agree with Bruce here. This is an open community, and as such, dictating whether
or not we can use reviewboard for reviews works against the openness. Furthermore, reviewboard
is NOT restricted to committers - I submitted many reviews using RB before becoming a committer.
Once the reviews were completed satisfactorily it was a simple matter to do a single push
to my GitHub fork and create a PR. My reviewers were familiar with the changes and pulled
in my PR.

I personally feel RB offers better tools for doing a review than PR’s through GitHub. Others
obviously lean the other way.
