aegis -Review_Begin(1)	    General Commands Manual	aegis -Review_Begin(1)

	aegis review begin - begin a change review

	aegis -Review_Begin [ option...	 ]
	aegis -Review_Begin -List [ option...  ]
	aegis -Review_Begin -Help

	The aegis -Review_Begin	command	is used	to notify aegis	that you have
	begun to review	a change.

	The change will	be advanced from the awaiting review state to the be-
	ing reviewed state.  boxwid = 1	down S1: box "awaiting"	"review" arrow
	" review" ljust	" begin" ljust S2: box "being" "reviewed" move to S2.w
	T1: spline left	0.5 then up 1 then to S1.w -> "	review"	ljust "	begin"
	ljust "	undo" ljust at T1.c-(0.5,0)

	If the review_begin_notify_command has been set	in the project at-
	tributes, this command will be run.  This is usually used to tell
	other reviewers	that you have started review, and they need not.  See
	aepattr(5) and aepa(1) for more	information.

	If used	when the develop_end_action project attribute is set to
	goto_being_reviewed, then only the notification	message	is sent.

	The following options are understood:

	-Change	number
		This option may	be used	to specify a particular	change within
		a project.  See	aegis(1) for a complete	description of this

		This option may	be used	to obtain more information about how
		to use the aegis program.

		This option may	be used	to obtain a list of suitable subjects
		for this command.  The list may	be more	general	than expected.

	-Project name
		This option may	be used	to select the project of interest.
		When no	-Project option	is specified, the AEGIS_PROJECT	envi-
		ronment	variable is consulted.	If that	does not exist,	the
		user's $HOME/.aegisrc file is examined for a default project
		field (see aeuconf(5) for more information).  If that does not
		exist, when the	user is	only working on	changes	within a sin-
		gle project, the project name defaults to that project.	 Oth-
		erwise,	it is an error.

	-REAson	text
		This option may	be used	to attach a comment to the change his-
		tory generated by this command.	 You will need to use quotes
		to insulate the	spaces from the	shell.

		This option may	be used	to cause listings to produce the bare
		minimum	of information.	 It is usually useful for shell

		This option may	be used	to cause aegis to produce more output.
		By default aegis only produces output on errors.  When used
		with the -List option this option causes column	headings to be

	-Wait	This option may	be used	to require Aegis commands to wait for
		access locks, if they cannot be	obtained immediately.  De-
		faults to the user's lock_wait_preference if not specified,
		see aeuconf(5) for more	information.

		This option may	be used	to require Aegis commands to emit a
		fatal error if access locks cannot be obtained immediately.
		Defaults to the	user's lock_wait_preference if not specified,
		see aeuconf(5) for more	information.

	See also aegis(1) for options common to	all aegis commands.

	All options may	be abbreviated;	the abbreviation is documented as the
	upper case letters, all	lower case letters and underscores (_) are op-
	tional.	 You must use consecutive sequences of optional	letters.

	All options are	case insensitive, you may type them in upper case or
	lower case or a	combination of both, case is not important.

	For example: the arguments "-project", "-PROJ" and "-p"	are all	inter-
	preted to mean the -Project option.  The argument "-prj" will not be
	understood, because consecutive	optional characters were not supplied.

	Options	and other command line arguments may be	mixed arbitrarily on
	the command line, after	the function selectors.

	The GNU	long option names are understood.  Since all option names for
	aegis are long,	this means ignoring the	extra leading '-'.  The	"--op-
	tion=value" convention is also understood.

	The recommended	alias for this command is
	csh%	alias aerb 'aegis -rb \!* -v'
	sh$	aerb(){aegis -rb "$@" -v}

	It is an error if the change is	not in the awaiting review state.
	It is an error if the current user is not a reviewer of	the project.
	Its is an error	if the current user developed the change and the
	project	is configured to not permit developers to review their own
	changes	(default).

	The aegis command will exit with a status of 1 on any error.  The
	aegis command will only	exit with a status of 0	if there are no	er-

	See aegis(1) for a list	of environment variables which may affect this
	command.  See aepconf(5) for the project configuration file's
	project_specific field for how to set environment variables for	all
	commands executed by Aegis.
