Subject Re: Patch review process
Date Mon, 02 Feb 2015 20:55:07 GMT
I like the idea of patch managers monitoring specific queues of issues,
perhaps implemented as a set of jira filters on different values for the
component or label fields.  Right now, looking at the whole HADOOP backlog
is daunting.  Using separate filtered review queues could help each
reviewer focus and parallelize the work.

Going back to the topic of tooling, I just learned that multiple Apache
projects have expressed interest in Gerrit recently.  I've never used
Gerrit and so can¹t speak in favor or against it, but I think consistency
across Apache has benefits.  Issue INFRA-2205 has the discussion.  The
issue is closed, but there is recent discussion in the comments.
