You can post comments, addressing them to other participants, and reply to the comments left by others.
A discussion can consist of one or more comments (replies).
To address your comment to a specific person or a group, just type @ in the text field followed by the person or group name (you can choose it from the pop-up list). Addressed (mentioned) users - either individually or as a group - are notified in their emails and assigned as watchers (if the discussion is part of a review).
There are three types of comments:
Review comment is not tied up to any particular file or part of code — its subject matter may be anything within the scope of the review.
Code selection comment is intended to pinpoint a particular code fragment in one of the files being reviewed.
Line comment is associated with a specific line of code.
Comments that are relevant to you also appear in the news feed.
