We are doing reviews prior to the changes being commited to CVS.
To enforce this process, you can modify the CVS pre-commit script. This
script can then check change for review approval.
We currently require the bugid to be in the cvs commit log, as such we query
the bug tracking system and check if the bug is in the review state and has
an enclosure containing the review summary. The enclosure gets added to the
bug report when the user moves the review request to 'close (submitted)'.
CVS doesn't deal well with rolling back changes, and we only want 'good
reviewed code' to enter our repository, so do all our reviews prior to

> Hi, all.
> Our team is now requiring that the code review will be an indispensable
> step in development. So we want to integrate the Repository with the
> ReviewBoard server. Then the development process will be:
> 1、Somebody have developed or have changed some source code of a product.
> 2、He use "cvs add", or then " cvs commit" command to commit his code.
> 3、CVS can then generate a Reviewrequest for this code change to RB.
> Reviewboard will notice the reviewers of the default review groups to make
> the code review.(The default review group will be where the commitor is in).
> 4、All reviewers can review those code through web UI, And the code commitor
> will fix all found bugs and recommit.
> 5、When all reviewers has admitted that the code is OK， Then the code will
> automatically commit to the CVS repository.
> 6、optionally，A notice of code commit success will given to all
> That is, When the code editor want to commit his code, His code should be
> firstly reviewed. No truely commit to repository if any reviewer do
> not accept his code. This process should be forced instead of optional. Then
> how to realize those function? especially how to integrate CVS with
> ReviewBoard server? Need suggestions or documents related.
