Update for Gerrit v3.2

Since the plugin used GWT UI, which no longer exists in Gerrit v3.2,
the plugin's GWT part got removed. As the plugin did not yet come with
a PolyGerrit interface, it is currently without UI, but it still allows
to query dependency information.

Gerrit Zuul Plugin

Openstack uses Zuul for project gating and one of the features of Zuul is cross repository dependencies (CRD). Zuul will detect CRDs in git commit messages to allow it to arrange patchsets (in order) before scheduling them for build and test.

The problems with having only a ‘depends-on’ reference:

  • It can become very difficult, downright confusing really, to determine the dependency relationships.
  • The use of CRD can produce dependency cycles which can be difficult to detect.

To help alleviate these issues this plugin adds the following:

  • A reverse lookup for the ‘depends-on’ reference.
  • A REST endpoint to allow other clients to retrieve CRD info.

Detailed information about this plugin can be found in the documentation.
