Where is BIRT development discussed ??? Re: [birt-dev] Request for patch review for Bugzilla 176874

I just looked through the archives for birt-dev from the start of this year. There have been a lot of checkins to the code, but I couldn't see one single discussion or issue raised amongst the committers. This seems really strange for an open source project. The comments below indicate changes are reviewed, but I haven't seen any review comments or feedback by any committer or anyone else against any piece of code.

It seems then that the development must be being discussed elsewhere. From a discussion in Jan it seems unlikely the user forums are where it is happening since comments there indicate most of the committers are not active in the user forum. Also the user forum would be a strange place for development discussion.

Can anyone provide a link or subscription information to where birt development discussions actually happen. Also adding that information to the community page would be very useful.

That sounds great, I agree reviewing code is great. It was just the use of "we" in "we are reviewing" implied to me that there was some group of people somewhere having a discussion about it. Since this is open source I'd assumed that the discussion was happening on some open mail list and since it wasn't happening on birt-dev (which seemed the logical place) I wondered where it was happening.

We really appreciate your contribution, we just need to do a bit more work
before we can throw it into our platform.

Thanks for the contribution,

Actually it wasn't my contribution, it was from Deepa Remesh, I was just confused by the reply.
