That's great! I wish the merge review could show side by side diff and 
more context than a few lines (a bit like reviewboard does). Is that a 
planned feature?

Also if someone submits a merge request then usually it receives 
comments and the author has to change things - in this case it would be 
nice to see the diffs between the 2 submitted versions so you see only 
the changes made to the patch since the last request. That way you can 
easily see if the issues raised have been addressed...

| Bundle Buggy is tailored to Bazaar's particular review process.  It uses

| GMANE.  Its primary objects are merge directives.  It is Free software,
| and anyone can deploy it whether or not they use Launchpad.
