Tool to submit code to Gerrit

Project description

# git-review

A git command for submitting branches to Gerrit

git-review is a tool that helps submitting git branches to gerrit for review.

## Setup

git-review, by default, looks for a git remote called gerrit, and submits the current branch to HEAD:refs/for/master at that remote.

If the “gerrit” remote does not exist, git-review looks for a file called .gitreview at the root of the repository with information about the gerrit remote. Assuming that file is present, git-review should be able to automatically configure your repository the first time it is run.

## Usage

Hack on some code, then:

git review

If you want to submit that code to a branch other than “master”, then:

git review branchname

If you want to submit to a different remote:

git review -r my-remote

If you want to supply a review topic:

git review -t topic/awesome-feature

If you want to submit a branch for review and then remove the local branch:

git review -f

If you want to skip the automatic “git rebase -i” step:

git review -R

If you want to download change 781 from gerrit to review it:

git review -d 781

If you just want to do the commit message and remote setup steps:

git review -s

## .gitreview file format Example .gitreview file (used to upload for git-review itself)

[gerrit] host=review.openstack.org port=29418 project=openstack-ci/git-review.git defaultbranch=master

Required values: host, project

Optional values: port (default: 29418), defaultbranch (default: master)

### Notes * Username not required because it is requested on first run * Unlike git config files there cannot be any whitespace before the name of the variable. * git-review will create a gerrit remote upon first run

## Installation Install with pip install git-review

For installation from source simply add git-review to your $PATH

## Contributing

To get the latest code, see: https://github.com/openstack-ci/git-review

Bugs are handled at: https://launchpad.net/git-review

Code reviews are, as you might expect, handled by gerrit. The gerrit they use is http://review.openstack.org

Use git review to submit patches (after creating a gerrit account that links to your launchpad account). Example:

# Do your commits git review # Enter your username if promped
