Crucible roles - confused and a bit frustrated

I want to use Crucible for reviewing code, but it seems that the roles are over complicated - for my small brain, anyway.

In my terminology, I want to allow a reviewer to review an author's changes.

For example if Bob submits some changes, I'd like me (James) to be able to initiate, perform, and summarize a review of Bob's code.

How can I set this up in Crucible? Currently I do the following:

  1. Create a review,
  2. Browse changelists for Bob's changes
  3. Select the changelists which I want to review
  4. Edit the review details - and here's where I run into problems.

I want to make Bob the author and me the Reviewer. However Crucible insists on having a moderator (which is set to me), and won't let me be reviewer and moderator.

If I try to remove the need for moderators from the project (under administration), then I get a message that a moderator must be set up under the default permission scheme.

So presumably I need to create a new permission scheme which allows me to not have a moderator.

Can anyone give me pointers as to how to achieve what I want here?

You could set the author as the moderator, then you could be the reviewer.
