Code review is at the heart of our development process. Any software contribution to MediaWiki or any other Wikimedia hosted project is reviewed and approved at gerrit.wikimedia.org before being merged to our Git repositories. The tool we use to handle code reviews is Gerrit.

All Gerrit users can review contributions. Maintainers have the special rights to approve or reject contributions.
