Is it possible for pull-request author to be also a reviewer ?

Here is the use-case:

  • Several developers commit on a branch.
  • The project manager creates the pull-request; he is the "author" of the PR.
  • The project manager wants to be part of the review.
  • The project manager accept/refuse the PR based on the reviews.



You cannot. That beats the purpose of a review smile

Maybe it be usefull for dissociative identity disorder.
