I think we have been talking at cross purposes.

Some people here in this thread (Antonio Terceiro most clearly) have
been asking for something to support a code submission and review
workflow.  Most of the conversation is to discuss what that problem is
and what a solution might look like.

But I understood Paul to be saying that such software (that, for
example, Antonio is looking for) already exists.  Which is why I asked
these questions about it.  But it turns out that the implementation
you were pointing at doesn't actually do what is needed, as far as I
can see.  It deals with the needs of a wiki, which are rather

I'm aware of the various git hooks; I know how software to do exciting
things with incoming git pushes can be hooked into git.[1]  So I don't
need implementation pointers.

I just want to know if I'd be wasting my time if I wrote something to
try to address the problem discussed in this thread.  Or, if that
would be a waste of time, what needs to be written (or used) instead.
