Subject Re: [DISCUSS] require reviews before merging a PR
Date Fri, 31 May 2019 15:46:47 GMT
As a writer, I'm a big user of Lazy Consensus: If no one objects, I'm
merging my change. Requiring multiple reviews discourages minor
improvements. In the doc realm, I'm inclined to check in typo fixes and
grammar corrections without even bothering with the PR process, but I do it
for the community-ness of it. But requiring three reviews to correct a
spelling error is a big waste of the reviewers' time.
