Steps of a review

In case of any finding while going through the following steps, don’t continue with the next step but ask the author for clarification or change instead!

  1. Take a broad view of the change - Read the description and/or take a look at corresponding issue.
  2. Examine the main part - Look at the file and section which contains the most (important) changes first.
  3. Look through the rest - Inspect all other changes done.
