[cross-project-issues-dev] Enforce Gerrit for Simrel?

Hi all,

Gerrit for SimRel has been widely used by many projects and the validation checks that come with Simrel have successfully caught a bunch of issues before the had the opportunity to break the Simultaneous Release. Gerrit and Code-Review can have an incredible effect on software quality, many projects and teams enforce it with success. I don't have metrics, but maybe David can say whether he felt a noticeable improvement in stability/quality since the inception of Gerrit a few months ago?

I believe it's the right time to start considering enforcing Gerrit usage for SimRel: a first implementation would be to have committers push to refs/for/master instead of master, and would either be reviewed by someone else, or review themselves their contribution. The Hudson validation job triggers automatically on any contribution and gives a vote if the contribution is breaking the build.

What do you think?
