Just to remind this will happen tomorrow morning.


Gerrit (https://codereview.qt-project.org/) will be unavailable while we deploy a new version.

The upgrade takes the current v2.2.1 based version to v2.7 based. Most of our customized features stay: staging system for CI, one page review and deferred changes. The topic review feature, very little used and not functioning properly, is dropped. The user experience should stay pretty much the same. There are some UI improvements, though, and of course a lot of bug fixes.

Full history of how Gerrit itself has evolved between these versions can be read from Gerrit release notes (https://gerrit-documentation.storage.googleapis.com/ReleaseNotes/index.html). Some usability related picks here.
* search operators are suggested as the user types the query in the search panel
* commit message can be edited from the change screen
* patch sets having unpublished draft comments are highlighted with an icon
There is plenty of new stuff, one needs to read the documentation for deeper knowledge.

I’ll send out a follow-up once the service is online again.
