-1 to forcing the use of refs/for/x


The validation results are unreliable as the aggregation build is not safely reproducible. A failed validation result is just as likely to be due to someone changing their already-contributed repository.

I don't really have a strong opinion here though I do favour everything going through Gerrit just so that everyone who's watching the project in Gerrit has visibility into what others are doing.

BTW, I can't agree with this argument about the verify jobs though. If jobs are failing, we're in a world of hurt anyways. Maybe this will help raise the visibility of that.

Right, by enforcing Gerrit, I was meaning "enforcing review".

But I myself would not like to see it *required* to go through "refs/for/master".

Why so? Have you tried using it?

I think most already do go through "refs/for/master" and the few times they do not

It's about half-half: . All changes that don't have a "refs/changes/..." tag where pushed directly to master, without review and preliminary validation.

I would assume they have a good reason for it.

I would assume it's more that they need to be educated/encouraged/forced to use Gerrit.

Can you point out (or monitor for) cases where people go directly to "refs/heads/master" and it causes problems?

First, there are all failing builds that pre-dates Gerrit usage ;)
I have troubles to identify where to get a history of the SimRel builds and to associate it with the actual commits that were involved. The CI jobs on do not show easy to consume data. Is there somewhere else I can look at to first get a list of recent-ish failure of simrel for Neon?
