Removal of pre-receive hook and instead doing CODEOWNERS file validation in merge check:

We decided that pushing commits should always be possible (for example to backup partially complete work, to hand over stuff etc.), even if there are errors in the CODEOWNERS file(s) like syntax errors or permission problems for defined code owners.

We therefore moved the CODEOWNERS file validation check to the merge check side, where the source branch is checked to have valid CODEOWNERS file(s).


Resolved issues in 2.5.1 on

  • Merge check fails with "not permitted to access" if pull request is issued from a fork 

  • Pull Request cannot be created when the code owner file contains a email of an user without repository permission.

Resolved issues in 2.5.0 on

  • Rendering issue for Pull request edit form in Bitbucket >= 7.5 fixed.
