A new polished issue summary table for review requests

Since Review Board 1.6, we’ve had a table of all open issues (comments that have a task that needs fixing before a change can go in), sitting right below the fields of a review request. This could be filtered by reviewer and by status type, showed summaries of the comments, the date/time the comment was filed or last updated, and the status type.

It was pretty text-heavy, though, and not easy to read at a glance. As such, most people probably ignored the nice filtering abilities and, really, most of the content.

So, I redesigned it.

Here’s how it looked before:

And here’s how it’ll look in Review Board 2.5 beta 2:

It’s even more mobile-friendly:

Users will get to use the new table later this week.
