Discussion on: How do you catch up with code that was merged recently?

On projects where we do PRs, I'll be notified of them and give them a glance to see what's happening. Sometimes I'll go have an IRL chat about it.

On other projects (which is most of the things I work on, to be honest) when I commit more than a trivial change, I'll have a chat about what I did over a coffee after a stand-up or something like that. So from real conversation I'll have an overview of what was done and why, that doesn't require me to look at code or keep up with features that might not affect me. That way, in the general course of work I rarely end up finding anything that surprises me.
