I've been using BitBucket for a few months now, and my team and I seem to struggle much more with pull requests than I've ever seen while using GitHub's interface. I'd really like to know how other teams deal with the concept of a code 'review' and tracking a Pull Request (PR)'s progress.
In GitHub we had the notion of a specific review that was issued on a PR, the PR author could later mark as resolved, and the reviewer could check what had changed between that review and the new state. I'm not sure what the BitBucket-flow looks like.
Hey @olivier.butler , Bitbucket PM here. We don't yet have the concept of a 'review' which packages feedback yet, but we're getting ready to work on it.

Yes, of course, we're all on Bitbucket :)
Here is the best information I can share. We're working on a new PR experience that you are probably using if you've just started on Bitbucket. The next 2-3 months will probably be mostly about addressing primary usability issues, but we're also getting ready to start some new functionality, with some improvements to Code Review status ("Requests Changes"), syntax highlighting, and "marking files as reviewed" as our starting points.
