Abstract

Disclosed is a source code review method that leverages a new type of source code annotation in unique combination with source code change history analysis to identify a set of developers who have been involved with a given segment of a source code file. The approach is recursive, following referencing code segments to expand the set of reviewers to ensure the changes are understood in an end-to-end context.
