What is the difference and intended usage of a 'Regular Review' vs the 'Initial Review' that I can create from the Code Review Board?

The initial review mode allows reviewing code of a project in its current state, whereas the regular review provides only the inspection of the incremental changes to the code. This feature will be particularly useful to those who are starting to review the code in a project.
  • Files, not revisions, are added to a review. The latest revision of the file is retrieved from the repository.
  • Any number of files can be added in a review from the repository.
  • Based on the comments, the latest revisions of files can be added to a review and several iterations can be implemented.
