Gerrit is a web based code review system, facilitating online code
reviews for projects using the Git version control system.
Gerrit makes reviews easier by showing changes in a side-by-side
display, and allowing inline comments to be added by any reviewer.
Gerrit simplifies Git based project maintainership by permitting
any authorized user to submit changes to the master Git repository,
rather than requiring all approved changes to be merged in by
hand by the project maintainer. This functionality enables a more
centralized usage of Git.
Gerrit 2.x and later run in any standard Java servlet container,
and includes an embedded SSH daemon, providing gitosis like group
security and data access. If desired, the review process can be
skipped by directly pushing branches/tags, if the necessary access
has been granted to the user.
The last time I announced Gerrit on this list, it only ran on
Google App Engine. Gerrit 2.x and later is designed to run in
any environment, without requiring the use of a Google product,
or network connectivity to the Internet. This makes it much more
suited for corporate deployments, or open source projects which
already have their own servers.
Currently, Gerrit is under very active development, with stable
releases being made about once per week. As such, I won't be
announcing future releases here very often.
