Maverick is a GitHub app and a pull request review tool that is based on AI. It actively watches the specified repository on your account and whenever a pull request is detected, it reviews it by analyzing what changes have been proposed. It analyzes the changes in the code and then generates a summary what the pull request author has tried to do.
When you are using Maverick, you will not have to further inspect every single pull request and then corresponding changes in the code. It generates the summary of changes and its impact as comment right on the pull request page. You can just reach that and then decide to reject it or merge it. Basically, this app is going to save you a lot of time.
In normal workflow, another GitHub user or developer will fork your code, make some changes, and create a pull request. After you receive then request, you will have to inspect that. Basically, you will need to see if the added code is correct and doesn’t break other things. This can take some time from hours to days. And Maverick here does that for you now in just a few seconds.
