reverting patchsets results in gerrit not wrapping lines in commit message
Open, Needs TriagePublic


Filing this task to report a bad behavior on gerrits part.

I had to recently revert a patchset, and the revert behavior caused a commit message line character limit error:

Original (no issues) patchset

Patchset to revert the above, introduced line wrap issues:

When the commit message window is filled out, it doesn't then line break the commit message as our CI checks require, and thus fails. The editor should be patched to line wrap commit messages properly.

I found this error when reverting that patchset, and @Paladox helpfully advised I should file a task about it for potential upstream filing fix in Gerrit for review.

Filled upstream at

I will see what needs doing and see how easy it is with js code.
