The refs/notes/review namespace
`refs/notes/review` is a special reference that Gerrit creates on repositories
to store information about code reviews.
When a repository is cloned from Gerrit, the `refs/notes/review` reference is
not included by default. It has to be manually fetched:
$ git fetch origin refs/notes/review:refs/notes/review
It is also possible to
link:[configure git]
to always fetch `refs/notes/review`:
$ git config --add remote.origin.fetch refs/notes/review:refs/notes/review
$ git fetch
When `refs/notes/review` is fetched on a repository, the Gerrit review
information can be included in the git log output:
$ git log --show-notes=review
Content of refs/notes/review
