How was code reviewed before employing GitHub PR?


I’m interested in understanding the code review process of Rails.

I find that GitHub PR was used by Rails since the end of 2009,

and I want to know, before that, how code review was conducted.

Through a code review mailing list? or any other code review systems?

Are there archives of those reviews?

Anyone knows? Thank you!


You used to post your patches on the rails trac instance, and later the lighthouse tracker. Looks like the trac instance no longer exists, but the lighthouse data is still at Discussion took place there & on the rails-core mailing list and the rails-contrib IRC channel.


I see.

Thank you very much! Fred.
