What is Gerrit Code Review?

Gerrit provides web based code review and repository management for the Git version control system.

If you are new to Gerrit, you may read a Quick Introduction directly from the Google-hosted documentation Gerrit web-site:

Gerrit is intended to provide a lightweight framework for reviewing every commit before it is accepted into the code base. Changes are uploaded to Gerrit but don’t actually become a part of the project until they’ve been reviewed and accepted.

What is Gerrit Virtual User Summit?

Gerrit Virtual User Summit is the event for everything related to the Gerrit Code Review Community.

The Gerrit Virtual User Summit is the place where all of major Gerrit users annually meet and exchange experiences and practices that foster the community with new and useful ideas.

This year the summit will only take place virtually online, because of the COVID-19 pandemic and the travelling restrictions.
