Exherbo’s Gerrit for 3rd party repositories

Exherbo’s Gerrit has left its infancy and, thus, I can now add 3rd party repositories to our Gerrit installation. Please just let me know if you’d like that.

  • Requirements:
    • Your repository must use git.
    • You must have an account in Gerrit.
    • You must be willing to add a Gerrit user (github: Gerrit-Exherbo; BitBucket: gerrit-exherbo) to your repository as a contributor.  Here’s the public key. (You don’t need the public key for github or BitBucket; if you’re unsure, you most likely don’t need it.)
    • Your repository should be hosted on one of the big git hosting providers, e. g. github (preferred) or BitBucket. Let me know if your repository is hosted elsewhere.
    • Please let me know the push URI for your repository.

Once I’ve set you up, you can immediately work on Gerrit patches for your repository. You are, of course, its sole owner and fully responsible for it.

By default, Exherbo’s core devs (but nobody else unless you explicitly ask me to add someone) will be able to +2 Gerrit changes for your repository, too. This is meant to potentially help you keep your repository up to date (e. g. when mass changes occur). This is entirely optional, though, and you can choose to opt-out at any time if you don’t like it; you only need to let me know.

I am and have been working on quite a few F/OSS projects:
  • Exherbo (Nick: Philantrop)
  • Gentoo (Nick: Philantrop)
  • Calibre plugin iOS reader applications
  • Calibre plugin Marvin XD
  • chroot-manager
  • stuff on github
  • Lots of other projects
  • If you like my work, feel free to donate. 🙂
