It is finally there! The idea behind this book was mentioned many times during the Gerrit community meetups and finally Luca made it a reality! The Gerrit book is out there and it is pretty good read!
I had an opportunity to go through this book and I must admit that this is a fully complete guide to Gerrit. You will learn not only how to use Gerrit, how to create, publish and submit reviews, but also how to setup Gerrit from scratch, integrate it with Jenkins/Hudson, GitHub and your corporate Single Sign On mechanism. Moreover, there is even an example configuration for Apache reverse proxy! If you are not familiar with Git Version Control System, you can even find there essential information regarding this matter. In other words, this is an exhaustive introduction to Gerrit.
In the book you will find an example of a code review workflow with a detailed description how things work in Gerrit, why and where to put ‘Change-Id’ as well as why it is so important for Gerrit. Apart from that, you will learn about Gerrit’s terminology and conventions used in the community such as WIP, RFC, ‘nit’.
All in all, if you are planning to start yours journey through code reviews with Gerrit, this is the position that I can highly recommend for you.
