Code review is the systematic examination of source code.

The code review process on Denigma is very informal and highly effective. At the beginning there shall be a Denigma Enhancement Proposal (DEP). It can just be a simple feature request, e.g. Todo object. During or after implementing what was proposed, the proposal is edited/updated to become a Denigma Enhancement Protocol which is like document review report that describes the implementation. The source code itself is under source code control so that several persons can have a look on the implementation. An issue tracker on GIT may be filled, but this is not a requirement. If the implementation gets confirmed by at least one other Developer it will be considered directly to be applied.

In such a code review process consist of there steps:

  1. Make a change
  2. Let someone else check the change
  3. If approved merge the change
