Alpha Release Review Workflow

Library Module Alpha PR Review Workflow

This describes the process for reviewing a PR to a library module dev branch.


This process applies when reviewing a PR to the dev branch of a library module.


  • Complete the following. Note any issues in Review Comments before leaving a review to Request Changes. If there are no comments or the comments do not require code changes, then you may Approve the PR.

    • Review changes to imports and verify dependency minimum versions are accurate.
    • Ensure code changes have adequate unit test coverage.
    • Ensure there are no breaking changes.
    • If changes replace or could replace an existing method, ensure a deprecation warning is logged in the replaced method (either deprecated decorator or log_deprecation call).
    • If tests are modified, make sure newly deprecated methods are still tested and that changes do not remove any test cases.
    • Highlight any added TODO or existing TODO comments related to the changes.
      It is up to the PR author and reviewer to decide if a `TODO` must be completed
      before merging OR if an issue can be created to address it in a later PR.
  • Ensure the PR title and body are completed. Make any revisions necessary or work with the PR author to make those changes.

  • Leave a review to Approve or Request Changes. If reviewing a draft or if unable to test changes, leave a Comment review indicating why it isn't an Approval, i.e. "Unable to test." or "Noted pending TODO"


  • There should be no exceptions to this review process.
