Very nice code review tool

I just wanted to quickly mention Review Board - a free code review tool that we're using here at Symantec. It is very easy to create a review based on a diff, pick reviewers, publish it, and manage comments - you can add comments to a specific line and have per-comment discussions.

All review comments are published via email so it can be tied into an open source community where all discussions/reviews are supposed to happen over the email list.

So much better than email reviews, where you have to somehow manage all the comments in a single email, which can be quite daunting.
