I just discovered the application today (hi!); I've been looking for
something like it, and come across Atlassian Crucible, Gerrit and Rietveld
One of the features I'd want from such a tool would be to have a code-health
report that is derived from the % of code covered by review.
* The code-health of an unreviewed section of code would be very low.
* The code-health of a reviewed ages-ago section of code would be low.
* The code-health of a reviewed-not-long-ago section of code would be
It might be nice to support different classes of people having different
affects on code-health in this report - for example, getting code reviewed
and passed by a senior developer would carry more weight than a junior
(where "senior" and "junior" are just class-names; I'm not suggesting that
people automatically get more weight by being employed longer).
I would also want to be able to assign other scores to such a report from
tools that run during the build process, like code-coverage triggered by
automated tests, static analysis reports, etc.
I'd also want an API way to integrate with an issue-tracker so that one
could correlate defects between pieces of code affected, which could happen
by knowing which issues are being hit by which source-control commits
(something that's already quite common, I think; each place I've worked has
had that to one degree or another, but stop short of actually analysing that
Is this kind of thing within the remit (or roadmap!) of reviewboard?
