Hello everyone at Github,
In my team we have put in place a special calendar where each engineer got a day assigned to do support and PR review. It works well and help review code faster.
There is no specific code owner on the repo so we are not using the Code Owner feature.
But we could definetly use a feature to assign a day per person (instead or in combinaison of part of the code)
This could help auto assign PRs and issues, for private and open sources repo !
There is obviously a gotcha when the engineer is in vacation or whatever but it’s good enough 99% of the time.
