Finishing up git and gerrit

A little while ago, I made the confident assertion that Git and Gerrit would have achieved the status of full blown services by the end of April 2015. Given that it is now the 27th of April and I’m no further forward, this now seems unlikely but let us at least record what remains to be done to achieve completion


  • Write blog article on changes


  • Put final draft of git documentation on
  • Move active repositories on git.inf to git2.inf
  • Archive inactive repositories and inform users where possible that this has been done
  • Move git2.inf to git.inf


  • Complete instructions for installing gerrit on DICE server. Test by installing latest version of gerrit and migrating service across to it
  • Write watcher script to restart gerrit when it falls over
