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.
