If your developer team is well-versed with standard VCS then I don't think they need this additional software to occupy their memory, they already have those capabilities within all VCS. A well-suited use case can be a team where not everybody has knowledge of VCS but has to collaborate on a project.

  • The functionality for code reviews is great, especially the ability to comment on specific lines of code.
