They upgraded Launchpad.  The latest version implements branch
commenting, which looks like a crude sub-set of a code review tool:

Vote and comment on proposed branch mergers

Launchpad's merge proposals are a great way for project contributors
to get their code considered for inclusion in the main line.

Now, branch owners - and anyone else who's interested - can vote and
comment on merge proposals.

Aaron Bentley, who's been working on the feature, says:

 These changes make it easy to discuss and tweak proposed changes to a
 branch. You can browse the branch which contains the changes then
 comment and vote directly on what you've seen.

Comments build into a threaded conversation about the branch. You can
also vote either on the branch as whole, or use custom tags to apply
your vote to a specific aspect of the work.

Take a look at one of the first branch merger comments here:


This is just the start for this feature. Keep an eye on future
Launchpad releases!
