Prepare wikibugs gerrit bot for gerrit 2.14 / 2.15 / 3.0
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Hi, this task is so that the bot will work with gerrit 2.14 and 2.15.

in gerrit 2.15, they are removing support for drafts and they replaced it with private changes. They also added support for wips. So not sure if we want the bot to ignore changes that are wips.

I'm not convinced it's a good idea to completely hide WIP patchsets from IRC.

On the one hand, it is nice to hide repetitive 'another WIP patchset uploaded' messages [1].
On the other hand, not reporting WIP changes also deprives that user of (useful) comments while the patch is still WIP. Earlier feedback is generally a good thing.

One additional note is that the current proposed implementation in wikibugs [2] essentially stops reporting if the task is WIP, even if updates had been sent before. In effect, the WIP flag thus becomes a 'mute-wikibugs' flag.

I like the idea of a mute-wikibugs flag, but I'm not certain if 'WIP' is the right way to do this. Maybe a hashtag 'muted' would be better?

Edit: actually, this seems exactly how WIP is intended in Gerrit: . That's not consistent with how it works in e.g. GitLab (where it prevents merges), but this is consistent with hiding events on IRC.

@Legoktm: what are your thoughts on this?

[1] Note that this is a more generic problem -- a flood of PS1 Jenkins-fail PS2 Jenkins-fail PS3 ... PS10 is also annoying in a channel. Part of this can be solved by the user doing a better job at their pre-push workflow. Part of this can possibly be solved by limiting wikibugs' output a bit. But that also decreases its usefulness...

@Paladox What is the situation now since we will be on 3.x soon?

On @Legoktm said that he "want[s] to make sure wikibugs can still parse the
stream-events feed properly." So I guess Legoktm is (also) looking into it?

I did a bit of testing against gerrit-test, and most everything looks like it works... I tested creating a new change, abandoning, rebasing. The only scenario I didn't test is that we properly ignore some of the bots.

One minor change is that the URLs are now the long form instead of Given that we are limited by message length on IRC, I think we want to use the short form.

Regarding WIP patches, currently changes to them go to IRC, but the transition from WIP <--> Ready for review doesn't. I don't know what the ideal behavior is because I don't really use the draft/WIP feature, but I do appreciate seeing draft patches to give a concept review, etc.

Gerrit is now on 3.2. So this task should be closed or renamed?

I think we're set now. If people want to see (or not see) WIP patches on IRC, let's discuss that in a few task.
