Subject [DISCUSS] Introducing Gerrit for quality? was: [PROPOSAL] Using continuous integration to maintain our code quality...
Date Fri, 06 Jun 2014 23:26:45 GMT
Hi all,

Seems it's a good timing to bring back the discussion about the gerrit.

We want to do CI, and improve our code quality. One obvious way of doing
and reduce the workload of devs is introduce a tool to enforce the process.

I've checked out quite a few projects using gerrit, which would force you
to ask for review, and validation before the code can be committed to the
repo. Looks it's really a easier way for devs according what I've heard.

Even our competitor laid out a very detail workflow based on the use of
gerrit( ). I guess it can
make a good reference.

Well, gerrit has been brought up a few times before. And now the new
process we want to enforce just fits what gerrit(or other automation
review/test/commit software) is for.

Maybe it's the time for us to review the possibility of using a tool to
enforce our commits and improve our code quality(as well as transfer
knowledge) again?
