The @PLUGIN@ plugin provides support to define code owners for directories and files in a repository/branch.

If the @PLUGIN@ plugin is enabled, changes can only be submitted if all touched files are covered by approvals from code owners.

An overview of the supported features can be found here.

IMPORTANT: Using the @PLUGIN@ plugin is recommended only for repositories that contain files / folders that are owned by different users. If this is not the case, and all files / folders in the repository are owned by the same users plain Gerrit permissions should be preferred instead.

IMPORTANT: Before installing/enabling the plugin, or enabling the code owners functionality for further projects, follow the instructions from the setup guide.
