Reviews/GerritConnectorProposalDraft

Mylyn Reviews Gerrit Connector

Background

The Eclipse community and many other organizations are moving towards Git. Gerrit is the preferred code review solution in a Git-based environment.

Scope

The scope of this project is to provide a Gerrit connector for Mylyn. The following features are planned:<br>

  • Incooperate the Gerrit reviews in the Mylyn task list
  • Provide a rich editor for reviews
  • Offline support
  • Provide inline-commenting for source code reviews

Description

The proposed project will be based on the Mylyn Reviews framework. The framework provides a common review model that needs to be extended to render all features of the Gerrit connector. In addition, the inline commenting feature will be provided by the Reviews framework.

Planned plugins

  • Mylyn Reviews Gerrit Connector Core
  • Mylyn Reviews Gerrit Connector UI

Initial contribution

The initial contribution is provided by SonyEricsson. (TODO link CQ)

Developer community

We expect to extend the initial set of committers by actively supporting a developer community. We will make it easy for interested parties to take an active role in the project by making our planning and process transparent and remotely accessible.

User community

Gerrit has a broad user community (e.g. Eclipse.org or Android).

Tentative Plan

Presentation of a stable and useable initial version at EclipseCon 2011.
