I want to be able to specify an "observer" role distinct from "reviewer" -- someone who is being included so as to be made aware of a change, but isn't necessarily expected to go through the code with a fine-toothed comb. How do I go about doing this?
You could also try sharing the review using the 'Share' button.
The people you share with (they can be Crucible users or you can just specify an email address) will get an email telling them about the review, and an optional note attached.
A couple of options come to mind....
For one project I was on, the role of the Moderator for the review was essentially "someone who is being included to be aware of ac ahnage, but isn't necessarily expected to go through the code with a fine-toothed comb."
The other is to use the Watch feature. Quickly stated: A watch will send you (or whoever set the watch) an email when something in an activity stream changes. You can find more information about it by looking for the heading "Watching an Activity Stream" in this Crucible Documentation.
I'm OK with the person having a Crucible account -- I just want to be able to clue them in on what's going on without them having to do anything (add themselves as a watcher, add the RSS stream to their feeder, or whatever). At this point, I'll probably just make it a discipline to indicate in the review notes who is an "observer" and who is an actual "reviewer". It'd be nice if there were just another role in Crucible.
