At the time, I tried to get a patch into gerrit. I kept screwing up the commits and they had to be undone by one of the team members. I remember spending more time fighting the system than I did coding. It was quite embarrassing .
All this was probably due to an early version of gerrit and an early version of git.
When I look back to the history  it does contain a nice amount of information.
Would you briefly describe your experiences with using gerrit for
the git project?
My hope was that *particularly* for non-committer contributions,
that gerrit could make things easier/quicker/more efficient than
reviewing attachments to bugs. If it doesn't actually accomplish
that, however...or costs a lot to do that...then I don't want to

Anyway, I am happy to give it another try. I
will try to free some time to investigate.
I have looked at the wiki and the previous discussion
as pointed out by Scott and have this question: What
problem is solved with Gerrit?
Assumption: Code reviews are desired/desirable...at least
under some circumstances (e.g. contributions from
If you grant the above assumption, I would say that Gerrit
provides support for automating doing such code reviews (like
any tool IMHO, it doesn't 'solve' the problem but rather
'improves/simplifies/supports' such a process).
It's not my intention/expectation that all commits/pushes to
ECF would require a Gerrit review. But there are occasions
when having code reviews...and having support for doing
so...would be useful IMHO (at least there are occasions when I
would like to request that others review my contributions).
...but I see what you mean about integrating
with our Jenkins server.
Markus do you have any thoughts on how would you
like to handle interacting with the EF admins
about what's the best/right course here (e.g.
hosting our own Gerrit vs. using EF Gerrit
installation)? I would like to see review
system and build system integration (as Alex's
video demonstrates)...but I'm not sure what this
will take...and I certainly don't want to take
on a whole lot of additional integration (and
the inevitable maintenance)...if we don't have
