Dear list,

I'm not sure about other libraries, but in Boost.Thread Vicente the 
primary maintainer does the lion's share of dealing with pull 
requests but he occasionally needs someone else to review a patchset 
or a pull request before it can be merged. Github's facilities for 
this are okay - you can comment per line of a pull request, and 
overall. It works, though one wishes for something more gerrit like.

So enter a new free tool with github integration: One click install into your github project. 
You now gain an alternative UI for pull requests, one which is much 
better than the default Github UI, specifically:

* Per file review gating like gerrit
* Can publish a group of per-line comments as a single thing (and 
just one email notification)
* Doesn't hide deleted change history
* Diffs are much better calculated and presented

I've turned it on for AFIO. We'll see how it goes.

I have not tried it yet, but it may be worth giving it a try for reviewing our PRs.
