Ability to remove reviewers on pull requests

Issue #11045 wontfix

Since pull requests are automatically updated with changes in the branch from which they came, reviewers are notified of every push to the branch. If a pull requests has been made, reviewers added and then substantive changes are required, it would be nice to be able to remove reviewers so they don't get the notifications and then they could be re-added once those changes are finished.

    @erikvanzijst, Removing the reviewers. The way we have been handling the situation described in the original post is to delete the pull request and then issue another pull request after changes have been made.

    I think it's fair to say that our plans for pull requests on the medium term future do not include automatic removal of reviewers on PR updates. However, we are considering the possibility of removing people's approvals when new commits are added, but that is different than what you are asking.
