Configure git and gerrit¶
The recommended version of git is 2.7.4 or later. Check the installed version in the Ubuntu VM:
Create an SSH key to user with gerrit. Use no passphrase.
ssh-keygen -t rsa
Enter your SSH public key (id_rsa) into gerrit:
- Browse to https://gerrit.onap.org
- Log in
- Open the menu next to your name (under the green search button)
- Select “Settings”
- In the “Settings” sidebar, click “SSH Public Keys”`
- Click “Add Key…”
- Paste the entire contents of $HOME/.ssh/id_rsa.pub into the text area and click “Add”.
Install the git-review package.
sudo apt update sudo apt install git-review
- Create $HOME/.gitconfig (replace highlighted values with your own information):
name = FirstName LastName
email = firstname.lastname@example.org
[core]autocrlf = false
[merge]tool = vimdiff
[gitreview]username = YourLinuxFoundationId
If you’re behind a corporate firewall and your proxy server has SOCKS support…
You may be able to use the SSH protocol with git, which is preferred versus HTTP. This method is known to work in the AT&T corporate network. Install the socat package, which allows you to tunnel SSH connections through a proxy that supports SOCKS:
sudo apt update sudo apt install socat
Create (or append to) $HOME/.ssh/config (replace highlighted values with your information)
ProxyCommand socat - PROXY:host:%h:%p,proxyport=port
Verify that you have connectivity to gerrit through the proxy. Answer “yes” to continue connecting, if prompted.
ssh -p 29418 gerrit.onap.org
