How one code review rule turned my team into a dream team

Each PR review must have at least 2 same-team developer approvals. Manager approval does not count.

Rule 2

Each PR must have a good description. From reading the description, the reviewer should be able to understand what the code is meant to do. This has to be true even if there is a Jira ticket or a requirements page.

Rule 3

PR must have sufficient unit test and integration test coverage.

Rule 4

If the PR is a bug fix, it must contain a test such that, should the bug fix be reverted, this test would fail.
