Thanks! :) I think well organized merge reviews are working for both open and closed communities. For example, I was working for multiple companies from 10 to 200 people, using github, gitlabs and bitbucket with their similar core review flows.

It was working without any overhead.

However, I can see the value in tools like CodeStream, if they are properly integrated in workflows. Problem with new tools is that architects and stakeholders tend to just "slap them on existing infrastructure" without taking extra effort to integrate it properly and make transition process good.

In short, my take on that paying for new tool is the easiest part, making proper use of it is what requires skill, will and something else that was rimming with will, skill, but I forgot what it was.. :D
