Get started with the new version of Gerrit


I can't review or give +1s anymore!

The review button has been renamed to *Reply* and moved: It's big, blue and hidden in the middle → this is where you give +1.

I can't stage series of changes?

You can, but they can only be staged in order.

What's with all the bells and whistles?

The new version has an updated UI and is (hopefully) easier to maintain for future us. For example, you can now do online edits of changes!

I can't move my change to a new branch!

Sure you can, but the bot doesn't do it for you anymore. Just do X and Y in the UI.

I get failed authentication against rest endpoint errors (message suggests "prepend url with /a/" or something)

Clear your browser cache and try again. No really, clear your browser's cache!


  • internal user testing → take notes what is non-obvious
  • branch moving: do not use bot, it's in the UI
  • Update missing info in the FAQ (X and Y) and add screenshots
