Impending gerrit restart / reconfiguration

Andrew Grimberg <agrimberg@...>

What: The Linux Foundation will be changing the maximum connection
settings for Gerrit

When: ASAP (we're waiting on jobs to clear Jenkins first)

Why: Many jobs in Jenkins are presently failing due to Gerrit stating
that there are too many open connections. This usually happens when far
too many Jenkins jobs fire at the exact same time. We will be increasing
the maximum connection count to try to get around the problem.

Impact: Jenkins will not be building during the outage and Gerrit will
be offline for up to 30 minutes as the reconfiguration happens and
Gerrit restarts.
