Subject Re: Commenting on pull requests (was: Fwd: [jira] [Commented] (HAWQ-1) Remove .p4ignore files from source tree)

Thanks for starting this discussion Schubert.

One thing I can say is that, probably we need to be able to comment on 
pull requests, especially if a comment is specific to a particular line 
in the pull request (e.g. question about something in the code). It 
would be somewhat counter-intuitive if we say that it's not ok to 
comment on pull requests, because posting these comments to the jira 
ONLY will make it very hard to refer to the line in question.

If there is a mechanism to make those comments generate emails to this 
list automatically (similar to how fisheye today generates emails with 
every comment that's added), I think that would be ideal...

If not, then perhaps we can limit the comments there to things that are 
directly in the pull request, and move any discussions to the jira 
(although that line can be blurry sometimes). And either way, it would 
be nice to have some sort of notification whenever someone posts a 
comment to a pull request...

Also, I would like to hear how other ASF projects handle this.
