Mylyn Reviews

Just in time for Christmas, a new project proposal called Mylyn Reviews was posted. Mylyn Reviews aims to take the work done in the ReviewClipse project and mend its notion of code reviews to Mylyn tasks.

Mik Kersten and I will be mentoring the project as it moves and begins its new life at Eclipse. I’m personally very excited to see this project coming to Eclipse and evolving. I see a future where code reviews are integrated into Eclipse as easy as Mylyn tasks are.

    I'd like to advise on avoiding coupling the changeset definition to SVN's. More, SVN specifically should not be required.

    (I do not know how feasible it is.)

  • I believe that is the intention of the project. They are looking to link reviews to other version control systems like CVS and Git. There are challenges though with doing that based on how those respective version control systems work. Check out their presentation from Eclipse Summit Europe 2009 for more information.

    Good one. Could be useful in bigger teams to watch out for code quality.

    This is very interesting project. I'm looking forward for final release. I've read “Tentative Plan” which is part of Mylyn Reviews proposal. According to the plan some version should have been already released. Where can I get it?

  • Pawel, you can find older releases on the old ReviewClipse site.

  • Pawel Chodarcewicz

    Yes, I know, but I work on a project which uses CVS (AFAIK ReviewClipse cooperates with SVN only, am I right?).

  • Yes, the old ReviewClipse only works with SVN. The plan is to have it work with other version control systems when it becomes the Mylyn Reviews project at Eclipse.org

    I just reviewed the creation review document today so it should be a week or two until the code is moved to Eclipse… maybe this is a great opportunity for you to get involved at Eclipse.org!? I'm sure they would love to have a contributor.
