[openstack-dev] Infra needs Gerrit developers

Hello All,

I believe you are all familiar with Gerrit.  Our community relies on it
quite heavily and it is one of the most important applications in our CI
infrastructure. I work on the OpenStack-infra team and I've been hacking on
Gerrit for a while. I'm the infra team's sole Gerrit developer. I also test
all our Gerrit upgrades prior to infra upgrading Gerrit.  There are many
Gerrit feature and bug fix requests coming from the OpenStack community
however due to limited resources it has been a challenge to meet those

I've been fielding some of those requests and trying to make Gerrit better
for OpenStack.  I was wondering whether there are any other folks in our
community who might also like to hack on a large scale java application
that's being used by many corporations and open source projects in the
world.  If so this is an opportunity for you to contribute.  I'm hoping to
get more OpenStackers involved with the Gerrit community so we can
collectively make OpenStack better.  If you would like to get involved let
the openstack-infra folks know[1] and we will try help get you going.

For instance our last attempt to upgrading Gerrit failed due to a bug[2]
that makes repos unusable on a diff timeout.   This bug is still not fixed
so a nice way to contribute is to help us fix things like this so we can
continue to use never versions of Gerrit.

Thank You.
