Submitting and reviewing code

For test automation changes, it is crucial that every change is reviewed by at least one Senior Test Automation Engineer in the Quality team.

We are currently setting best practices and standards for Page Objects and REST API clients. Thus the first priority is to have test automation related changes reviewed and approved by the team. For test automation only changes, the quality team alone is adequate to review and merge the changes.
