In my prior company, we used Review Board to facilitate reviews between developers working here in the States, and abroad in different countries and it was really effective. But I didn't have to install it.
At my current company, the subject of code reviews came up, and I mentioned this tool and promptly got tasked with investigating how to bring its use in house.
We're a 100% windows shop, so I went with the bitnami installer; but was quickly out of my depth.
I would really need something that explained the installation process, questions, etc. and how to determine the correct answers.
I am not a sys admin person, just a developer; sys admin is handled by a different group of folks.
This stack took all the pain out of installing Review Board on a RHEL 6 machine. It cut down the install and setup time from around 1 day to just over an hour. One downside is that it doesn't come with PyLucene so the search functionality for Review Board doesn't work out of the box. If you have any interest in trying out Review Board this stack is the fastest way to get it up and running.
