Mahara started to use Gerrit code revision system recently. All proposed changes to master branch of the project now go through the compulsory revision process that requires approval of the change by the other developers. Adding this revision step in the code committing workflow improves the quality of the committed code and team awareness about the changes and new features. It allows absolutely anyone to contribute to Mahara by committing the patch or new feature directly to the code revision system, getting feedback from the core developers and other people and participate in code revision themselves. Making participation in development process simpler could attract more people to Mahara developers’ community and make Mahara better.
The presentation will demonstrate how code revision works. It will display the whole way of the patch from creation on developer’s local system to the merge into master branch through revision and validation. The presentation will cover how to use Gerrit interface, best practices in revision system use, as well as most common scenarios that may occurs during revision process.
