Allow viewers to create a branch review request

Currently, viewers cannot create a review request at all - they require edit access on the main branch to either merge or request a review by other users.

Ideally a viewer should be able to request review of a branch that they are an editor of, without the ability to merge.

Hi Oscar!

Thanks for reporting – this looks like a bug to me, and I’ve flagged it with the team. You’re totally right that viewers on the main file should be able to request a review on their branches :+1:


Following up, this should be fixed now.
