Rietveld

At first glance, Rietveld seems very cool. As someone who spends a good portion of their day reading emailed subversion commit logs, I've always wanted a tool to properly annotate commits with comments. It really sucks having to reply to the diff email and make comments. There is no good tracking system for that except to keep an internal stack in my memory of all the comments I make and then make sure that my co-workers make the necessary changes. With open source projects, it is even more difficult because of the huge number of changes that happen on a daily basis. I can't wait to try this tool out.

Did you try reviewboard which gets lots of good press lately?

And of course there is Crucible which I am using in a customer project whch really rocks (and integrates well with Fisheye and JIRA (No surprises here))
