MozReview and the Review Board web interface are tighly integrated with Bugzilla.
Asking a user for review on Review Board will create an attachment on the
associated Bugzilla bug and will set the
review flag to
request review from the specified user. Clicking on the attachment in
the Bugzilla user interface or following the link to the review will
redirect you to Review Board.
When someone leaves a review on a review request, the chosen flag value will be set in Bugzilla (or cleared if the empty value is chosen).
If a new revision of a commit is pushed up to MozReview, a new
attachment will not be created. Rather, any
r- and cleared review
flags on the original Bugzilla attachment will be reset to
r+ flags will be left as is, that is, the review is
carried forward. This last part is under discussion and may change in
the future. There is also work under way to allow explicitly
re-requesting review even if a
r+ has previously been granted.
Review comments will be turned into Bugzilla comments when reviews are published. The full content of the review comment will be reflected in Bugzilla.
The existing Bugzilla comment format is far from optimal and will likely change.
We are even considering removing low-level comments from Bugzilla completely. All options are on the table. If you have ideas on what things should look like, please get in touch.
