|Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Reminder that Sim. Rel. build input Git repo is now "under Gerrit"|
There is a new option in Gerrit that is like "Cherry Pick" but a bit better called "Rebase if necessary". It basically allows to avoid merges but also keep track of patchset dependencies, unlike the "Cherry pick" option which ignores any patchset dependencies and can sometimes cause problems.

The policy on simrel is to only accept “Fast forward” commits. However, Gerrit is configured to “merge” contributions, thus rejecting changes if another commit has been pushed during the validation build .
 Example: https://git.eclipse.org/r/#/c/48794/

I have had a few questions on this lately about "why can't I push to .../gitroot/org.eclipse.simrel.build" ... and the answer is that now we've
moved to use Gerrit to "push changes".
