When "need-review" should be removed?
User B should remove "need-review". Code in gerrit has its own review
process and it shouldn't be necessary to keep the keywords in Bugzilla
up to date. User B should make sure that the bug has a comment
referring to his gerrit submission.
What if I believe that core ideas behind the
patch are wrong?
Leave a comment with your thoughts. You could also remove the
"need-review" keyword and, optionally, mark the patch as obsolete.
Marking it as obsolete is a pretty strong statement, though.
What if I just think the implementation
should be improved?
Remove the "need-review" and leave a comment with your suggestions.
Directing the submitter to gerrit for future submissions is a good idea,
too, but that might add another step that that makes future submissions
What it it's more or less okay?
Remove the "need-review" keyword and direct the submitter to gerrit or
submit it to gerrit on their behalf. Make sure you refer to the bug
number in first line of the commit message (see
for an example). Other people
will then have a chance to review it and it may be merged.
If you don't have a gerrit account, apply for one or find someone who
does to apply the patch.
Before I open a whole can of worms by asking a
how do I relate those keywords to the Gerrit workflow
Oops! I guess I opened the can and not you!
