Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] SimRel - direct push to master has been disabled


Normally you would use the Gerrit review link to finish the processing.  E.g., for the last commit I used this link:

After the initial commit, I waited for the build to finish so that CI Bot (one of the automatic reviewers) adds a +1.  That takes about 5 minutes. Then I used the Reply...  (or the Review +2 button, which will be there after the successful build) to make it possible to "Submit" the changes to master, i.e., the Submit button will be there once all the reviewers (CI Bot and you) have voted the changes up to the necessary level.

So the chain of events looks like this in the review:

After submitting, when I do a pull on the repo, my changes are pulled and the repo is up-to-date (no longer one commit behind master).

I believe a non-dilegent user could remove CI Bot from the review to submit their changes even when those did not pass the aggregation build but it appears to me that there really is no good reason to allow direct push to master as a way to completely bypass the CI Bot review.

Sorry I must have missed something. My no doubt flawed recollection was that we were assured (again) that direct push would continue to be allowed.

I certainly use it every time since I see no other way to do it.

I push to Gerrit, check for build success, then Push to master.

Given that the bulk of failures are surely due to those updating magic 'latest' contributions without any commit, why change the rules for more diligent users?

As discussed before, direct push to master for the SimRel aggregation
build repository

disabled. So, all future commits have to go through a Gerrit review and
should get a +1 from the CI server before being merged.

The reasoning behind this is, that commits directly pushed to master
caused build failures and delays in the past.

Please let me know, if you have any questions or concerns.
