I saw the term code vetting for the first time in a gerrit review page. What does it mean?

The line I came across:

"No XYZ check was done. However, if this project is intended to be shipped in the future, please make sure XYZ Code Vetting is done."


Definition of vet (Entry 3 of 3)

transitive verb
1a : to evaluate for possible approval or acceptance
// vet the candidates for a position
b : to subject to usually expert appraisal or correction
// vet a manuscript

You've tagged your question ; well, 'code reviewing' seems like a good approximation to what that term means.
