Re: How to setup git-review

Nashif, Anas

Thanks for documenting this but I don't think forcing people to use git-review is the right approach. It worked for us before in many other projects, why is this different and why can't I use vanilla git to gerrit interaction?

What is the issue here exactly?

Hi all,

I was having some trouble to submit a change to Gerrit which depends on
someone else's change. If I use the 'git push' command as described in [1],
I get the following error:

remote: ERROR: In commit <commit id>
remote: ERROR: author email address <someone(a)>
remote: ERROR: does not match your user account.
remote: ERROR:

Talking to Andrew Grimberg from Linux Foundation, he recommended using
git-review and it worked around the issue.

Here are the instructions I followed to setup git-review:

$ cat > .gitreview

$ git-review -s

To submit your patch(es) to review:
$ git-review -T

I hope this can save you time in case you run into a similar problem ;)

BTW, Andrew submitted a patch adding the .gitreview file so we don't have
to keep it locally.
