Start your next gerrit code review without any hassle.

Project description

Start your next gerrit code review without any hassle.

So you have 10 minutes to spend on code reviews and you want to be as productive as possible. You definitely don’t want to spend 9 minutes shuffling through code reviews that Jenkins already hates, you’ve already reviewed, etc., and you should definitely be looking at that awesome patch that’s about to expire due to two weeks of inactivity.

Solution: Use next-review to immediately jump to the “highest priority” code review currently awaiting your gracious downvotes. Inhale some code, articulate your opinion, cast your vote and then move on to your next-review. Got it?


From PyPi:

$ pip install next-review


If you can use git-review, you can probably use next-review. Assuming you’re watching some projects in gerrit, have an SSH key public key somewhere obvious and your login name matches your gerrit username, you can just do:

$ next-review stackforge/python-openstacksdk Add Transport doc

The link will be automatically opened for you, because that’s how lazy I am.

You can also abuse the return code to see how many reviews you have left to go until it’s time for beer and/or sleep:

$ echo $?

Or, you can just view the entire list without automatically opening any links:

$ next-review --list stackforge/python-openstacksdk Add Transport doc openstack/keystone Fix variable passed to driver module openstack/python-keystoneclient Make auth_token return a V2 Catalog openstack/keystone Refactor create_trust for readability openstack/identity-api Replace non-breaking space

Configuration File

next-review has the concept of a multi-section (ini-style) configuration file. The default location it looks for it is ~/.next_review. In this configuration file the default section is [DEFAULT] and the following options are supported: host, port, username, email, key, and projects. These values will override the defaults, but any cli-arguments that are explicitly set will take precedence over the config file.

If you specify sections other than [DEFAULT] you can use the --config-section argument to specify the section that should be used. If a given option does not exist in the specified section, the parser will look in [DEFAULT] and if the option does not exist in either section, it will fall back to the global defaults. So the order of precedence would be option passed on the command line, options in the section specified by the --config-section argument, options in the [DEFAULT] section, and finally the global defaults.


  1. Older changes should be reviewed first.

  2. If Jenkins is failing a change, then the author has work to do.

  3. If SmokeStack is failing a change, then the author has work to do. If SmokeStack hasn’t reviewed a change, that’s okay… SmokeStack is lazy, too.

  4. If a change is already blocked by a core reviewer or marked WIP or Draft, then it’s not going to merge right now anyway.
