Gerrit is a web-based code review tool built on top of the Git version control system. This introduction provides an overview of Gerrit and describes how Gerrit integrates into a typical development workflow. It also provides a brief tutorial that shows how to manage a change using Gerrit.

What is Gerrit?

Gerrit makes code review easy by providing a lightweight framework for reviewing commits before they are accepted by the codebase. Gerrit works equally well for projects where approving changes is restricted to selected users, as is typical for Open Source software development, as well as projects where all contributors are trusted.
