Gerrit (/ˈɡɛrɪt/ GERR-it) is a free, web-based team code collaboration tool. Software developers in a team can review each other’s modifications on their source code using a Web browser and approve or reject those changes. It integrates closely with Git, a distributed version control system.

How does Gerrit integrate with GIT?

If you are already hosting your git repos on Stash, or Gitolite, or GitHub, you might want to experiment using mirroring or some other technique, but for this demo, I will make Gerrit the canonical git provider for my repo.

What is Gerrit repository?

Gerrit is a self-hosted software application that provides code review functionality. The free web-based tool is open source and can be downloaded and run in Java. … In the simplest setup, Gerrit could be used as a simple Git repository hosting without any code review to push code.

Why is Gerrit used?

Gerrit is a web-based code review tool, which is integrated with Git and built on top of Git version control system (helps developers to work together and maintain the history of their work). It allows merging changes to the Git repository when you are done with the code reviews.

How do you pull Gerrit?

In GitHub, you would push your branch to the remote, go to the Web UI and create a pull request. In Gerrit, you need to push your commit (or the series of changes/commits) to the remote first, since you usually develop in a local branch only.

How does Gerrit work?

When Gerrit is configured as the central source repository, all code changes are sent to Pending Changes for others to review and discuss. … When enough reviewers have approved a code change, you can submit the change to the code base.

How do you rebase in Gerrit?

In some cases, it is possible to resolve merge conflicts issues in Gerrit using a simple rebase triggered directly from the Gerrit UI. Just click on the “Rebase” button to rebase the change. The behavior is described in Gerrit Review UI: If the rebase is successful, a new patch set with the rebased commit is created.
