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
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...

| Code Review is designed to work for any project. It is tightly
| integrated into Launchpad and provides its own discussion forum. Its
| primary objects are branches. For a project that already uses
| Launchpad, it does not require any additional setup.
| Bundle Buggy is tailored to Bazaar's particular review process. It uses
| the project's existing mailing list, and also ties into Launchpad and
| GMANE. Its primary objects are merge directives. It is Free software,
| and anyone can deploy it whether or not they use Launchpad.
| I don't consider one better than the other. They are still too
| different for a direct comparison to make sense. I certainly intend to
| keep working on both. I do consider Bundle Buggy better *for the Bazaar
| project*, because it's tuned to our workflow and can continue to adapt
| to our needs directly.
