  • It is bad form to tell users to make `--global` git configuration changes to conform to the policies of a single project. Sparr (talk) 06:00, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
  • Firstly, most of the settings are entirely uncontroversial. Some should be just git defaults (some are meanwhile). Secondly, anyone who seriously works on Qt will have 50+ Qt repositories, which easily dwarfs everything else they have on their disk, so the pragmatic choice is to make the Qt settings the global default and override them where necessary.

doc not clear?

Under "Local Setup", in the last step, it says:

> If the connection is functional, every Gerrit event should be displayed

But it gives no explanation of "every gerrit event" nor what the output might look like.

After I did all the above steps successfully, i issued the last command ssh codereview.qt-project.org gerrit stream-events, and my terminal just sat there, showing no output, doing nothing, and did not return to the command prompt.

What is expected here? DHLaw

the instructions have been indeed botched up; i haven't been watching closely enough. will fix now. Ossi (talk) 11:12, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

two separate SSH keys?

in the section "How to get started - Gerrit registration", step 5 says "Go to "Settings"-> "SSH Public Keys" and upload your public SSH Key". You'll note that the link for "public SSH key" points to github, which instructs the user to create a key named "ed25519". After that we are told to add it into the "gerrit->ssh keys" section. So far so good.

But then below, in the next section "Local Setup", we are instructed to create another SSH key named "id_rsa", and also add that into the "gerrit->ssh keys" section. Is this correct? we are to have two keys with different names?
