I love forcing code owners to review PRs, but I’d also love to be able to define a code owner that gets pulled in to review PRs, but isn’t a blocker.

I’m thinking something like…

cool/file @awesome_team?

The little trailing ?, maybe?

Is this a feature request that anyone else would be interested in?


I just started using codeowners for the first time and I could definitely use this feature. Particularly when other owners are involved, it’s cumbersome to have to have multiple teams review the same code.

agreed. this is a basic requirement which is available all other repo management tools ex: bitbucket
