I don't know about other projects, but we in the Heat project are 
constantly on the lookout for people who can be converted into core 
reviewers. Inevitably part of that process is evaluating whether someone 
has developed the depth of knowledge of the code that would allow them 
to catch a reasonable proportion of issues. One way to do that is to 
look at a a large selection of their past reviews, but the web interface 
is very much not conducive to doing that.

The data is available through the Gerrit API, so I threw together a tool 
to obtain and print it:


Basically it outputs the text of every review by a particular user in a 
particular project, along with a link.

The output is pretty basic, but would be easy to modify if somebody has 
other uses in mind. I hope this might prove useful to somebody.
