Subject: Gerrit / git-review

Gerrit / git-review

Hi again,
as you may be aware, with the recent version of Gerrit and following the
OpenStack trend, git gained a new plugin called git-review which is used to
manage patchset and can be used with gerrit. It is included in most
distribution (apt-get install git-review) and is very easy ot use.
However, it requires a little configuration named .gitreview which should
be committed at the root of the repository with the following content:


One committed, you can setup git-review on your local repository using:
git review -s
It will check everything is all-right and create a gerrit branch. You only
need to do it once.
Once setup is done you only need to remember a couple instruction:

To fetch a review numbered 1024:
git review -d 1024
And if you want a specific patchset, say 7, then it becomes:
git review -d 1024,7

You can then work on it as usual, make sure to amend the commit as usual:
git commit --amend

Finally push the change to gerrit:
gerrit review -R

If you want to create a completely new change, simple run:
git review

I am not entirely sure how useful this tool is but some of you might find
it easier to work with.
