my task is to conduct a review on a 'change package'. The repository consists of source code.
What I have found is: There are activities applicable to individual files which are members of the change package, e.g. view the differences between the changed file and its predecessor.
What I have not found, but which is something I need:
Creation of a sandbox which includes the files to be reviewed. I guess this must be possible, but how to do it seems not being obvious.
Creating this sandbox is required to be able to compile and link the new code, in order to run test-programs and language-checkers as well as generating some source code statistics.
Who could help?
