We use Trac for bug tracking, and we use its Wiki to perform manual
code reviews.  A developer creates a Wiki page with a list of
revisions that need to be reviewed, along with any other notes.  When
someone reviews the code, they add comments to the wiki page under a
section with their name on it, and the original developer can respond
to them.  A QA person basically handles the workflow manually,
ensuring that code is reviewed, poking people when they need to review
code or respond to comments, and so forth; it'd be nice to automate
this part with a tool like Review Board.
