The library under review needs to be a fixed one, stored in a compressed file in the Vault or elsewhere.
This do not means that you can not use the Sandbox to do your developement even during the code review.
Of course it could be good to show to the reviewers how you are taking in account his remarks on the Sandbox but what will be more important is to show it on this ML.

Just my opinion,
