Have you worked on a GitHub project with “Code Owners”?

Hey there! I’m curious to hear from people who have worked on GitHub projects with “Code Owners” where a PR cannot be merged unless an owner approves of it.

What are the advantages/disadvantages of it?

Has it affected your culture positively or negatively?

If you were to start a new project would you use this feature right away?


I am working on a few private projects that have “Code Owners” and it’s not clear to me what benefit we get out of it. Maybe we’re using the feature incorrectly.
