proto backend supports a proto-based syntax.
NOTE: Since the proto syntax is not final yet and backwards incompatible changes are likely to happen the
proto backend is only for experimental use and should not be used in production yet.
Code owners are defined in
OWNERS_METADATA files which are stored in the source tree. The code owners that are defined in an
OWNERS_METADATA file apply to the directory that contains the
OWNERS_METADATA file, and all its subdirectories (except if a subdirectory contains an
OWNERS_METADATA file that disables the inheritance of code owners from the parent directories).
NOTE: It's possible that projects have a file extension for code owner config files configured. In this case the code owners are defined in
OWNERS_METADATA.<file-extension> files and
OWNERS_METADATA files are ignored.
The proto syntax is not final yet and backwards incompatible changes are likely to happen.
TODO: Document the proto syntax.
