Code Review using Gerrit Git and EGit - September 21, 2010 Darmstadt

Code Review using Gerrit, Git and EGit

Gerrit [1] is a web-based code review system that supports online code reviews in projects in which the Git [2] version control system is used. It makes reviews easier by displaying changes by the pageful and providing the option for every developer to add inline comments.


This talk provides an overview of the Code Review topic and the use of Gerrit, Git and EGit [3] and their effective implementation. A demo illustrates the use of these tools in Open Source projects (Android, EGit), and draws comparisons with conventional review processes, as used by the Linux and Eclipse Open Source community.
