Very Large Development: How to run code review for 800+ Open Source Python Developers

by Joe Gordon for

The OpenStack Community has grown by leaps and bounds, in January 2011 there were 71 thousand lines of code and 61 developers and today there are 821 active developers, 896 thousand lines of code and over 2 thousand commits per month! According to Ohloh, ‘this is one of the largest open-source teams in the world, and is in the top 2% of all project teams on Ohloh.’

Keeping development running at this scale quickly becomes challenging, especially while trying to keep development as accessible possible. In this talk I will cover how OpenStack’s code review process has evolved to work at scale. We use many tools to streamline and automate the review process in order to reduce the burden on the reviewers. We have scaled and accelerated development by being strict and automatically enforcing our best practices.
