StandaloneSiteTest: Ignore user and system git config

Override SystemReader to return empty files for the user and system
config. This makes StandaloneNoteDbMigrationIT pass regardless of the
configuration of the system it's running on.

This has to happen in StandaloneSiteTest prior to site initialization,
since the SystemReader is queried at FileRepository creation time, and
Gerrit by design holds all created repos open in the RepositoryCache. If
we tried to override the SystemReader in a test, it would have no
effect, because the cached repos would already have the wrong config
files loaded.

Another complication is that GerritLauncher#mainImpl was creating a new
classloader for every invocation, meaning the SystemReader class used by
the wrapper code in StandaloneSiteTest was not the same class instance
seen by the tests. Fix this by explicitly passing a ClassLoader when

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.


Our canonical Git repository is located on There is a mirror of the repository on Github.

Install Bazel and run the following:

    git clone --recursive
    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]

NOTE: release is optional. Last released package of the version is installed if the release number is omitted.
