Pick a random reviewer

Written by  on January 30, 2019 

Most teams have a certain code-review-process. But most of the time there is no “round robin”-implementation who will be the reviewer, but the coder itself should select the reviewer. Because of domain-knowledge, etc. And then you her lots of times “I am currently busy. Not me!”

Solution: random and fair selection via bash.

Current version of the script can be found at: https://github.com/marcelpetrick/bashCollection/blob/master/randomReviewer.sh

Inspired by a stack-overflow answer.
