The person committing must the select reviewers and enter an objective and title for the patch. This operation notifies the reviewers through email. A reviewer can add comments to a patch, approve it, or reject it. Comments are sent to the requestor via email. If a patch is approved, the requestor can commit the code. When the code is committed, email is sent to the requestor and reviewers for notification.
