Gerrit Code Review code-owners plugin

This plugin provides support for defining code owners for files in a repository.

If the code-owners plugin is enabled, changes can only be submitted if all touched files are covered by approvals from code owners.

For a detailed description of the plugin functionality please refer to the plugin documentation.

IMPORTANT: Before installing/enabling the plugin follow the instructions from the setup guide.

NOTE: The plugin documentation only renders correctly when the plugin is installed in Gerrit and the documentation is accessed via https:///plugins/code-owners/Documentation/index.html. If you want to read the documentation before installing the plugin, you can find it properly rendered here.

JavaScript Plugin

For testing the plugin with Gerrit FE Dev Helper build the JavaScript bundle and copy it to the plugins/ folder:

bazel build //plugins/code-owners/ui:code-owners
cp -f bazel-bin/plugins/code-owners/ui/code-owners.js plugins/

and let the Dev Helper redirect from .+/plugins/code-owners/static/code-owners.js to http://localhost:8081/plugins_/code-owners.js.
