I believe exposing students to code review is a very important skill for
their future careers. Code review/reading is a skill just like code
authoring, it only improves through use and education. Currently computer
science is heavily skewed towards the authoring side with little to no
Reviewboard is a very open system, any user can see any review which is
posted. (At least in the 1.7.x line, I have yet to make the jump to 2.0).
As such, you will need to decide how much you wish to restrict access to
Reviews are created by an author. If you wish to make the author anonymous
then you will need to have all reviews posted by a single account. The
reviewer would then be assigned. At that point the reviewer would get
notifications (assuming you have email set).
You would then need custom hooks on the server that forwards the review
information back to the author.
Reviewboard depends on their being a source control versioning system in
place. What tool do you plan to use?
