Having participated in or followed a number of free software projects

LilyPond that uses a dedicated patch review tool. (Including the very
largest ones, such as Linux or GCC.) Reviews are done almost exclusively
by email -- and quite frankly, I don't see why anything else would be
preferred for the actual review. The only problem is tracking the status
of patches *afterwards*...

KDE uses reviewboard... Until a few years ago, patch reviews were only done for patches by newcomers, and that went over the mailing lists. But now more and more features are reviewed on reviewboard.
