I am looking into RB as an alternative to gerrit for code review, but one of the thing we really want is the ability to include custom data in review requests.

Will the new extension support in 1.7 allow adding additional, site-defined fields, and if so, is there any documentation/example how to do this? If not, is there any way to write a custom validator for a request description?

Basically what we need is an enum field that a: is required, b: must contain a value that matches a list of allowed values, and c: can be retrieved later when a branch is merged. A custom field (especially with working completion) would be ideal, but what we're doing now with gerrit is requiring a machine-readable tag in the request description, so this would be okay too.
