> Hi,
> Just to keep the ball rolling, we prepared the upgrade to move from Gerrit
> 2.16.7 to 2.16.9. I don't expect any real changes, but it's a good exercise for us
> to stay up to date and see if the scripting of the upgrade works.
> The only real challenge was upgrading Bazel, since every Gerrit version
> seems to only compile with one exact Bazel version (roughly).
> So far it seems to work nicely for me, running the script which stops gerrit,
> pushes the new release and restarts it takes around two minutes, so there
> won't be any significant downtime this time around.
> Assuming there are no big concerns I'll just do the upgrade tomorrow, on the
> test instance it works without problems.
> On a related note, now that things are generally working with the new Gerrit,
> I was wondering if we want to consider plugins. There is one to add
> reviewers based on git blame https://gerrit-
> review.googlesource.com/admin/repos/plugins/reviewers-by-blame
> and I'll give Gravatar a spin:

> We should also consider the various webhooks plugins. Comments

I'm getting from Qt Sanity Bot for https://codereview.qt-project.org/c/qt-creator/qt-creator/+/266791

The following reply every 5 minutes:

**** Worker 'sanity' produced an unreasonable amount of output. You should ask the bot maintainers for advice.

The current behavior is a bit loopy, can we do something about it?
