Re: review mirror

Almost certain to be a fingerslip typo (s below w on the qwerty keyboard), idnit? If not —what does revies mean? a metathesized, or simply misspelt, revise ? Some “rearview mirror” usages do have to do with revising history, but literal ones (and some others as well) do not.

Re: review mirror

Sorry, I see that revies was indeed a typo and the site (and your title) had review mirror . That’s been reviewed a few times already onsite: e.g. here
