This short ( 144 pages ) covers the basic setup/installation of a Gerrit server for local development purposes, working thru the permissions model and review lifecycles, then leading you off to integrating code review with automated builds ( Jenkins CI Server ), and publishing your repositories on Github.
By combining simple language and easy to follow examples, the reader is guided effortlessly thru the download, install, and setup process of Gerrit.
As an introduction to the Gerrit Code Review tool, this is an excellent book covering all aspects of Gerrit. The only downside is that it doesn't really cover Gerrit Plugins beyond Github integration ( in the defence of the book however, plugins are a new concept to Gerrit so bring on the Second Edition! ).
* Gerrit Development Lifecycles
* Integrating with other tools (Jenkins, Github, etc)
All written in an easy to understand style.
The only downfall is a review of the plugins. Since the tool relies heavily on plugins and plugin selection, an entire chapter (or maybe 2nd book) could be dedicated to selection, install and up keep of plugins.
I particularly appreciated the focus on a helping with a complete "real life" setup, including setting up user authentication via LDAP and integrating Gerrit with the most popular tools like Github and Jenkins CI.
It also covers the basics of Git, even if that's not the main focus of the book.
