NAME

       aegis -Review_Begin - begin a change review

SYNOPSIS

       aegis -Review_Begin [ option...  ]
       aegis -Review_Begin -List [ option...  ]
       aegis -Review_Begin -Help

DESCRIPTION

       The aegis -Review_Begin command is used to notify aegis that you have
       begun to review a change.

       The change will be advanced from the awaiting review state to the being
       reviewed state.  boxwid = 1 down S1: box "awaiting" "review" arrow "
       review" ljust " begin" ljust S2: box "being" "reviewed" T1: spline ->
       from S2.w then left 0.5 then up 1 then to S1.w " review" ljust " begin"
       ljust " undo" ljust at T1.c-(0.5,0)

   Notification
       If the review_begin_notify_command has been set in the project
       attributes, this command will be run.  This is usually used to tell
       other reviewers that you have started review, and they need not.  See
       aepattr(5) and aepa(1) for more information.

       If used when the develop_end_action project attribute is set to
       goto_being_reviewed, then only the notification message is sent.

OPTIONS

       The following options are understood:

       -Change number
               This option may be used to specify a particular change within a
               project.  See aegis(1) for a complete description of this
               option.

       -Help
               This option may be used to obtain more information about how to
               use the aegis program.

       -List
               This option may be used to obtain a list of suitable subjects
               for this command.  The list may be more general than expected.

       -Project name
               This option may be used to select the project of interest.
               When no -Project option is specified, the AEGIS_PROJECT
               environment variable is consulted.  If that does not exist, the
               user’s $HOME/.aegisrc file is examined for a default project
               field (see aeuconf(5) for more information).  If that does not
               exist, when the user is only working on changes within a single
               project, the project name defaults to that project.  Otherwise,
               it is an error.

       -REAson text
               This option may be used to attach a comment to the change
               history generated by this command.  You will need to use quotes
               to insulate the spaces from the shell.

       -TERse
               This option may be used to cause listings to produce the bare
               minimum of information.  It is usually useful for shell
               scripts.

       -Verbose
               This option may be used to cause aegis to produce more output.
               By default aegis only produces output on errors.  When used
               with the -List option this option causes column headings to be
               added.

       -Wait   This option may be used to require Aegis commands to wait for
               access locks, if they cannot be obtained immediately.  Defaults
               to the user’s lock_wait_preference if not specified, see
               aeuconf(5) for more information.

       -No_Wait
               This option may be used to require Aegis commands to emit a
               fatal error if access locks cannot be obtained immediately.
               Defaults to the user’s lock_wait_preference if not specified,
               see aeuconf(5) for more information.

       See also aegis(1) for options common to all aegis commands.

       All options may be abbreviated; the abbreviation is documented as the
       upper case letters, all lower case letters and underscores (_) are
       optional.  You must use consecutive sequences of optional letters.

       All options are case insensitive, you may type them in upper case or
       lower case or a combination of both, case is not important.

       For example: the arguments "-project, "-PROJ" and "-p" are all
       interpreted to mean the -Project option.  The argument "-prj" will not
       be understood, because consecutive optional characters were not
       supplied.

       Options and other command line arguments may be mixed arbitrarily on
       the command line, after the function selectors.

       The GNU long option names are understood.  Since all option names for
       aegis are long, this means ignoring the extra leading ’-’.  The
       "--option=value" convention is also understood.

RECOMMENDED ALIAS

       The recommended alias for this command is
       csh%    alias aerb ’aegis -rb \!* -v’
       sh$     aerb(){aegis -rb "$@" -v}

ERRORS

       It is an error if the change is not in the awaiting review state.
       It is an error if the current user is not a reviewer of the project.
       Its is an error if the current user developed the change and the
       project is configured to not permit developers to review their own
       changes (default).

EXIT STATUS

       The aegis command will exit with a status of 1 on any error.  The aegis
       command will only exit with a status of 0 if there are no errors.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

       See aegis(1) for a list of environment variables which may affect this
       command.  See aepconf(5) for the project configuration file’s project_
       specific field for how to set environment variables for all commands
       executed by Aegis.
