Not a code review platform. Flower Platform is a modeling platform. 
Think of it as a diagramming/UML tool:
* from which we have taken out the unnecessary code,
* we have added details that are not in UML but exist in the target 
programming language
* and that is designed to integrate with tools like: issue tracker, wiki

Our approach is to integrate with existing third party software. Like 
ReviewBoard for example, or the code review infrastructure from GitHub.

However, someone (or even us if there is demand) could easily build a 
code review tool on Flower Platform. Server side, we'll have the 
interface with Mercurial. We already have code to diff and decorate 
diffs. Client: we already have code that can highlight syntax, etc.

But I have a question: Review Board doesn't already support Mercurial?

Best regards,
Gabriela.
