Re: [wtp-dev] Plans for Gerrit?

I think that's a great idea Mickael. And yes, use of Gerrit has really helped many Eclipse projects.

Going through the dashboard for WTP [1], it's pretty clear that some of the WTP subprojects are near death. So maybe we only need Gerrit for the things that we would like new community for. So that leads to my question, does the WTP PMC have a strategic plan for where we want to be and which things the community should be focusing on?

Subject: [wtp-dev] Plans for Gerrit?

Hi all,

There is an ongoing discussion on Twitter about contributions to WebTools, and it seems indeed that webtools is not a very welcoming project for contributors. Not that contributions are not welcome, but more that contributors will probably find difficult to contribute and some are disappointed to see their contributions forgotten (example ).
So what are the plans to move WebTools projects to Gerrit? All projects that moved to Gerrit have seen a boost in their amount and diversity of contributors. I guess we all obviously want that for WebTools.

Moving to Gerrit is pretty simple: it's just a matter of asking webmaster and using a new push URL. It's not intrusive as committers can be allowed to still push directly to master without a review.
The more difficult part is to update the documentation, but that's far from being a showstopper.

So what are the plan? What are we waiting for?
