Giving and receiving feedback

At the hackathon in Brussel, CARE team member Michelle pointed out that the bulk of the incidents noted in the CARE team transparency report for 2018 revolved around code reviews on GitHub. In some situations discussions failed to remain productive and escalated for the worse. We want to take the time to highlight some of the best practices in the Symfony documentation to help prevent such issues in the future.
