In launchpad, when you propose a branch for merging and request
review, a new page gets created for that code review:


This page only lists the commits that have not been reviewed _and_
merged.  This page is a click or two away from the page you asked

I don't think you can use Guido's tools yet with bzr+launchpad.  But,
Launchpad's new code review system seems to do a lot of what we need -
and with 0 setup.

The workflow that are are playing around with is this:

1.  All devs do their work in branches*
2.  When they have a set of commits ready for review, they propose
that the branch be merged.
3.  People use Launchpad to review
4.  When all is OK, the merge happens.

*Sometimes the branches are short lived feature branches that go away
after the merge.  Other branches (like my trunk-dev branch above) is
long lived.  It is where I do much of my ipython development.  These
branches have a continual merge proposal.  The merge page shows the
latest commits that are ready to go and people can review just the
un-merged ones.

We have lots of fine tuning to figure out, but overall I am liking it.
 Compared to cvs/svn, this is lightyears ahead.
