Do we have any remaining blockers left to move forward? If not, any estimate time for when this will be done? Probably we should inform people via wikitech at least one week before. Thanks.

We are still trying to upgrade Gerrit to 2.15.14 successfully. We are running into issues when doing so, unfortuntately.

We'll definitely announce before we do it.

Gerrit 2.15 will reach its end of life at the next Gerrit hackathon in November 2019. Announcement:

Plans for Gerrit 3.1 release and end of life for 2.15

Sep 9, 2019 / news
Plans for releasing version 3.1 of Gerrit, and bringing 2.15 to end of life

During the [[ last ESC meeting | ]] it was decided that we will aim to release Gerrit 3.1 during the upcoming hackathon in Sunnyvale in November 2019.

Per the support policy mentioned on the project homepage, this means that 2.15 will reach end of life and will no longer be actively supported.

See also the recent post about the EOL policy.

Mentioned in SAL (#wikimedia-cloud) [2019-11-07T18:40:02Z] <paladox> rebuilding gerrit-test5 as gerrit-test6 (with buster) to re-test T200739

@Paladox re. gerrit-test[56]: Accessing redirects you to which is Error 404. The double // seems to be the issue.

Yeh, though that site is hosted on gerrit-test (not gerrit-test5/gerrit-test6). Also that issue appears to be in the clouds proxy since i didn't change the apache config when that issue first started (a while ago).

Tagged Developer Productivity as most teams I work with are unable to fix their struggles to share or coordinate their code review workflows in part because they can't easily create/share pull request dashboards for projects or teams. Most people use the new UI and depend on that for other productivity reasons, but that also means they can't use dashboards (T220801).

Is there also any plan to move to 3.0 or 3.1? As Gerrit team supports only 3 last major releases. 2.16 is currently the last one ( and will reach EOL when new major version is released (Q2 2020 ?). Of course after moving to 2.16, which is not an easy task at all.

Is there also any plan to move to 3.0 or 3.1?

Feel free to file a dedicated ticket.

Mentioned in SAL (#wikimedia-operations) [2020-05-15T13:37:35Z] <mutante> rsyncing gerrit git data from gerrit1001 to gerrit1002 (T200739)

Dzahn added a comment.May 15 2020, 2:06 PM

After talking with qchris I have rsynced /srv/gerrit/git and /var/lib/gerrit2/review_site/ today from gerrit1001 to gerrit1002. Our existing "migration" puppet class from the last upgrade already allowed it.

The commands listed on already/still work, except of course with a different destination host name:

[gerrit1001:/srv/gerrit] $ rsync --archive --verbose --delete /srv/gerrit/git/ rsync://
[gerrit1001:/srv/gerrit] $ rsync --archive --verbose --delete /var/lib/gerrit2/review_site/ rsync://

Just the /srv/gerrit/plugins dir has not been synced so far since there is not enough space on gerrit1002. at least not without deleting something else. I have deleted old log files from April there though to save some disk space again. For some reason they are not gzipped on 1002 but they are gzipped on 1001.

We are today on 2.15.14-16-g855b179b5f. Can this be closed?

edit: ignore my comment, i read this as 2.15.13 but of course it is 2.16.13.
