On this topic I was just poking around on bitbucket today and found bitbucket’s new connect platform. We could use this perhaps combined with LC html or just our own prettified views of a stackdir to do what we need for online code/UI review although I think it would require a server that maintained a clone of any repo that used the addon.
Hopefully GitHub and other hosts will also roll out a similar feature. I’d be surprised if they didn’t because it looks pretty handy for integrating with all sorts of things. I still think it’s probably easier to handle code review locally but it might be worth considering if the goal is trying to make LiveCode integrate with standard developer tools rather than just getting it to work with DVCS.
