Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The has two interpretations:

  • One is the code-review of versioning tools or systems like SVN or GIT
  • Second is the actual code-review of source code

The tag summary says that:

Code review is systematic examination (often as peer review) of computer source code. It is intended to find and fix mistakes overlooked in the initial development phase, improving both the overall quality of software and the developers' skills.

Now AFAIK the summary types of questions are not good for SO and are migrated to

There are some questions which are used with and some that want actual review of code.

So what should be done?

I think svn and git should come under version-control or something similar. At first glance, code-review says to me: "please check my code" – Dan Hanly Sep 4 '13 at 9:39
Yes I second that. Also if that is the case with code-review what is this tag doing on SO. It should be removed. – Narendra Pathai Sep 4 '13 at 9:46
Should we start flagging code-review questions? – Dan Hanly Sep 4 '13 at 9:49
1 Some are off topic and belong on Code Review (these can be flagged), some just need to have the code-review tag removed (these can just be edited) and some are 'please debug my code for me' (NOT appropriate for Code Review, these can probably be flagged for some other reason). As long as you know what belongs where, feel free to run with it. – Dukeling Sep 5 '13 at 12:17
Okay. So what about this one?… – Dan Hanly Sep 5 '13 at 12:23 Questions about conducting code reviews does not belong on either Code Review or SO. Possibly on Programmers, if anything (I haven't been on Programmers much though so I wouldn't "send it" there without talking to someone who knows that site better first). – Simon Forsberg Dec 19 '13 at 18:36
