Hi Riccardo

thanks for pointers you provided. I had a look at the Gerrit replication feature and the description says: "/Gerrit can automatically push any changes it makes to its managed Git repositories to another system./"

What I need would be exactly the opposite. I need to update the Gerrit managed Git repository with the upstream community Git repository.
How would I go about that?

What I tried was defining the community repository as remote origin and then do "git remote update". This updates the remote references but doesn't update the local branches.

Thanks, Ondrej

Hi Ondrej

The replication between Gerrit and git mirrors is done by the Gerrit replication mechanism.

If you look at this line in the gerrit manifest:


you will see that it deploys a 'replication.config' file based on template:

    I am trying to set up an OpenStack development workflow in our
    company. We have an internal Git repository mirror of all
    OpenStack projects we are working on. It is periodically updated
    from the upstream OpenStack community servers. This is used to
    share the code among developers.

    Furthermore I have set up a Gerrit server for the internal code
    review. The Gerrit server also works with repository mirrors of
    the community repositories which should be updated periodically.
    Or at least that's the idea. I ran into lots of problems and
    couldn't find a good way of synchronizing the developer mirrors
    with the Gerrit repositories.

    So to cut a long story short, here are my questions:
    How is the synchronization of the OpenStack community Git
    repositories and the Gerrit server done?
    How can I import an OpenStack project into my Gerrit system from
    my local Git mirror and keep both synchronized (at least the
    master branch) ?

    I would be really appreciate if someone could shed some light on this.
    Thanks, Ondrej
