After writing the last post, Peer Review Systems: Proposal, I started thinking about what a developer needs to check right now before he can start coding (this is especially relevant when access a part of the code that he didn't touch for a long time / ever).
- Documentation (Which in itself may have anything from manife
- Bugs History
- Peer Review System :-)
- Strange mystical ambiance about the code that only those who wrote it can disperse.
- The code history - from the SCM.
- The current code.
What I want is to have some way of brining it all together, so I can look at a module and see everything that went into it in one place.
Are you aware of any such thing?
