moving from bugzilla to mozreview

for the next couple of quarters (at least) i’ll be shifting my attention full time from bugzilla to mozreview. this switch involves a change of language, frameworks, and of course teams. i’m looking forward to new challenges.

one of the first things i’ve done is sketch out a high level architectural diagram of mozreview and its prime dependencies:

MozReview Architectural Diagram

mozreview exists as an extension to reviewboard, using bugzilla for user authentication, ldap to check commit levels, with autoland pushing commits automatically to try (and to mozilla-central soon).  there’s mecurial extensions on both the client and server to make pushing things easer, and there are plans to perform static analysis with bots.
