Additionally, the plugins/external_plugin_deps.bzl file needs to be updated to match the Kafka plugin one.

git clone --recursive https://gerrit.googlesource.com/gerrit
git clone https://gerrit.googlesource.com/plugins/kafka-events gerrit/plugins/kafka-events
cd gerrit
rm plugins/external_plugin_deps.bzl
ln -s ./kafka-events/external_plugin_deps.bzl plugins/.

To build the kafka-events plugins, issue the command from the Gerrit source path:

bazel build plugins/kafka-events
