“Distributed code review” means you can do cool stuff like this:
If you’re impatient and want to play with hg-review right away, here’s what you need to do.
First, clone the extension somewhere:
hg clone http://bitbucket.org/sjl/hg-review/
Then add it to your ~/.hgrc file:
[extensions] review = [path to]/hg-review/review/
Now you need a repository that has code review enabled. Luckily, you’ve already got one – hg-review uses itself for code review.
cd into the directory you cloned hg-review to and start the web interface:
cd hg-review hg review --web
If you want to use hg-review for anything more than some simple poking around, this is the place to start.
If you want to integrate hg-review with your own application or Mercurial extension, or hack on hg-review itself, this is what you need to know.
