some time ago it was proposed to use a code review tool to analyze 
patches, the topic was also discussed during the last IRC devel meeting. 
I cc-ed users mailing list, because people there might have experiences 
with some of them.

I found on wikipedia a short list of available applications for this 

- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_tools_for_code_review

Personally I haven't used any so far. Iirc, gerrit was proposed before 
by Victor Seva. From the wikipedia list, Differential would be 
straightforward to deploy from dependencies point of view, as we have 
php on our servers. But I have no clue which is the right/best to use, 
so here we have to decide if worth to use one and which one.

Besides the above one, perhaps github has an integrated review tool. I 
can be considered as an alternative as well.

My opinion is that such tool is useful, specially for big patches, to 
allow easier more people to have a look at them.

Hoping to get feedback on benefits of such tools and which would be the 
right/best to use.
