Gerrit at the Eclipse Foundation

Good news everyone, the Eclipse Foundation has been git’n it done and rolled out Gerrit to be used by any project who wishes to do so.

If you’re interested in using Gerrit for your project, please speak up on this bug.

It’s satisifying to see this finally be rolled out as a few of us committers have been pushing on this for the past couple of years as a way to modernize the Eclipse infrastructure. We have been piloting Gerrit for quite awhile in the EGit and JGit projects and have been very pleased with it. It’s great that Eclipse committers now have a convenient way of doing code reviews using Git if they wish to add that workflow for their project.

On a side note, I’m working on improving the way git contributions are handled by the Eclipse Foundation when contributors use Gerrit. I’m hoping to simplify the amount of work that needs to be done by committers and the IP team, if you’re interested in this effort, please follow and comment on this bug.
