|Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Making your project more openŠhowto enable Gerrit|
I almost wonder if we should just enable Gerrit for all projects. That's what we do internally here for all git repos that feed into product. It's great for all the reasons you mention Ed.
The thing I like most about it is the verification jobs in co-ordination with Hudson. You have so much more confidence when a change request is sitting there knowing it has passed the JUnit run. I'm going to set that up for CDT ASAP now that we have a HIPP instance.

If found migration to gerrit for EMF to be yet another painful step with the migration from CVS to (E)git being the first one. So incredibly many magical settings and so many fundamentally important new concepts. In the end though, I can definitely say that the pain is worth the gain. If you're even a little bit serious about opening up your project up to external contribution and really expect it to happen, you're missing the boat if you don't migrate to gerrit, which makes it incredibly simple for anyone to develop a contribution, i.e., anyone in the community can actually commit the changes in their local clone back to your Eclipse gerrit clone, which can be configured to run your build and run all your tests to confirm that the contribution doesn't break the build or tests, and then you can simply review and accept the contribution and by doing so, commit it into your real git repo. Of course gerrit is useful even just for the committers of a project, allowing you to run a build and the tests before you commit back to the real git repo, and naturally you can then do reviews easily and can run further test the patches locally (once you learn more of the git magic for how that works and don't shoot your own foot off in the process).
