We introduced a pre-review hook in mobile that makes it hard for you
to submit new code when there is existing code to review (check out
 if you are interested)
The problem I find is it tells _me_ to do code review, but all the
patches belong to me so I can't review them. I can poke people and ask
them to review it, but this usually isn't fruitful as it results in
"I'll do that later" or "I'm busy right now".
I feel that the pre-review hook is making me aware of other people's
patches more often but I've had to force override it a few times like
just now when I've found that I own all the existing patches (as I'm
scared I'll lose the patch or forget about the patch otherwise). This
actually has had the effect on me of investing time in other projects
like data analysis, mailing list discussions, coding on VectorBeta,
Limn and core rather than concentrating my energy on MobileFrontend. I
also feel reluctant to pick up new cards to work on when I'm in this
limbo state as I don't want to overwhelm the code review queue or end
up managing various patches that might conflict with each other.
I feel like I've contributed less to the MobileFrontend project as a
result - not sure if this is a good or a bad thing. That said it is
certainly a frustrating thing for me as I want to work on it more...
Something to think about.
