In every merge, CODEOWNERS is looking out for new patterns in ownership and contributions. If it finds a difference, it will send a request to edit the Code Owner’s file automatically. Never lose track of your changes again — and never lose time trying to figure it out.

What companies are saying about code ownership.

We found that high levels of ownership, specifically operationalized as high values of Ownership and Major, and low values of Minor, are associated with less defects.


One way that we staved off chaos without compromising engineers’ autonomy was implementing a codeowners system—this ensures that the right people get eyes on any given change, without imposing major changes to our review process.


This allows us to hold the entire team accountable for the code quality under their ownership, and avoids problems that arise when the ownership is centered on individuals.
