Advent of Pull Requests Best Practice - Day 10

Let's talk about something we've all run into: automated PR merges can be super handy, but sometimes they jump the gun, merging stuff while we're still eyeballing the changes. To keep things smooth and ensure everyone's input is heard, here's what we can do:

  • Hold Up, Still Checking This!: We need to tweak our auto-merge rules a bit. How about we only let a PR to be merged when all the feedback or comments has been addressed or resolved? If you're diving into a review, just drop a quick comment like "On it!" to let others know. Once you're done, clear up that comment, and it's a green light for moving forward.
  • Heads Up on Review Timing: Not always free to jump on a PR review the second it lands? No stress. A quick note back like, "Got your PR, I'll dig into it by tomorrow afternoon!" works wonders. Keeps everyone in the loop and sets clear expectations.
  • Tag, You're It!: If your plate's too full, it's cool to pass the baton. Know someone who's got a bit of time? Suggest them as an alternate reviewer. Keeps the PR train rolling without any hiccups.

This way, we can make sure nobody's insights get left in the dust while keeping the workflow efficient. 👍
