  • pylint and pep8.py should be integrated to git pre-commit hooks to catch all obvious fails
  • Reviewer notes should cover only logic of patch, other things will be caught on pre-commit level (if hook lacks of some checks, it shouldn't be subject for review process any way, and hooks should be fixed)
  • Submiting patches via email sounds pretty obvious and comfortable since glucose uses git.

    Possible options are, vote for particular option on [1]:
    • We dont need such centralization at all, this is just remains from previous workflow
      • no comments :)
    • http://patchwork.sugarlabs.org/
      • Pro:
        • already implemented
        • ...
      • Contra:
        • since most of patches are bug fixes, will have two places for bugs related info, bugs.sl.o and patchwork.sl.o
        • ...
    • trac <-> mailing list synchronization
      • Pro:
        • the same place for all bugs fixes related info
        • using only email to work with bugs.sl.o (not only for patches)
        • ...
      • Contra:
        • afaik, not implemented
        • ...
