Review Board is a powerful web-based code review tool that helps developers do peer review as they write code. Code review is a standard industry practice used to find bugs,improve quality, and mentor junior engineers.
Review Board is used by thousands of software companies including Twitter, Yahoo, and VMware, as well as many open-source projects like Apache and KDE.
Some possible projects include:
- Making improvements to Review Board’s extensions infrastructure, which allows third party developers to build features that aren’t generic enough to be part of the product.
- New kinds of integration with other services, such as deeper bug tracker integration, an adapter for GitHub pull requests, or allowing users to log in using Mozilla Persona.
- Reworking parts of the UI to work better on touch devices like tablets and smartphones.
