We have been announcing a migration to Gerrit for quite some time. I feel like we have reached critical-mass on pulling the trigger.
For those with commit access, not much is going to change.
* You have to have an account on review.haiku-os.org linked to your Github account.
* You have to provide your public key to Gerrit on review.haiku-os.org.
* You have to have your account added to the "Contributors" group.
With those three conditions met, you will have access to pull and commit to <user>@git.haiku-os.org/haiku and <user>@git.haiku-os.org/buildtools as before.
No change in git remotes needed (unless your github username differs from your current one)
We should be also able to accept patches much easier via the "git review" feature at review.haiku-os.org, however lets focus on keeping the current users working for now :-)
I plan on flipping on the new system at 6:00pm CDT tonight. That's in roughly 3 hours.
The current git.haiku-os.org services will be made unavailable while the DNS replicates, and the new server will be placed at git.haiku-os.org.
I would recommend not pushing commits between 6:00pm CDT and 7:00pm CDT until we have time to test and confirm functionality.
I'll keep this email chain updated with the current state of things.
