Thanks Holger.

Actually i do not keep the file after review. The only difference i saw
in your flow is reviewers may commit the file to the branch instead they
give their comments via mail. I thought to delete the file if it is
rejected but i do not thought enough about the comments.

But if the reviewers may be out of the group they may not be commit the
file to the branch as the only committers are the members of the group.
So either i should extend the group with the reviewers or i should
extend the right of tag folder as writeable for reviewers. Both of that
is confusing..

Anyway your flow about reviewers may be useful. Thank you...
