Subject Re: Using mention-bot to automatically ping potential reviewers
Date Mon, 07 Nov 2016 02:43:34 GMT
So according the documentation it mostly uses blame lines which _might_ not
be the best fit for Spark (since many of the people in the blame lines
aren't going to have permission to commit the code). (Although it's
possible that the algorithm that is actually used does more than the one
described in the documentation).

I'd love to know what peoples experiences of using this with other projects
with a similar structure as Spark (small set of committers to a large set
of contributors).

Even with that reservation it could be interesting to try out since this is
a really big problem for new contributors looking to participate in Spark
and the spark-prs dashboard doesn't seem to be catching everything.
