Don't serve polygerrit assets for git requests

After migration to PolyGerrit routes are mounted at the root
of the gerrit URL. Particularly these path prefixes are reserved:


and would collide with project namespaces, so that the project with
these prefixes cannot be served with Git over HTTP protocol.

Particularly, the /x prefix restriction is very painful, because quite
some gerrit users in the wild are using this prefix in their project
names and have problem to update to newer Gerrit releases.

To rectify exclude the serving of PolyGerrit assets for git requests.

Gerrit Code Review

Gerrit is a code review and project management tool for Git based projects.

Build Status


Gerrit makes reviews easier by showing changes in a side-by-side display, and allowing inline comments to be added by any reviewer.

Gerrit simplifies Git based project maintainership by permitting any authorized user to submit changes to the master Git repository, rather than requiring all approved changes to be merged in by hand by the project maintainer.


For information about how to install and use Gerrit, refer to the documentation.

    cd gerrit && bazel build release

Install binary packages (Deb/Rpm)

The instruction how to configure GerritForge/BinTray repositories is here

On Debian/Ubuntu run:

    apt-get update & apt-get install gerrit=<version>-<release>

NOTE: release is a counter that starts with 1 and indicates the number of packages that have been released with the same version of the software.

On CentOS/RedHat run:

    yum clean all && yum install gerrit-<version>[-<release>]

On Fedora run:

    dnf clean all && dnf install gerrit-<version>[-<release>]

Use pre-built Gerrit images on Docker

Docker images of Gerrit are available on DockerHub

To run a CentOS 7 based Gerrit image:

    docker run -p 8080:8080 gerritforge/gerrit-centos7[:version]

To run a Ubuntu 15.04 based Gerrit image:

    docker run -p 8080:8080 gerritforge/gerrit-ubuntu15.04[:version]
