online Git/Gerrit tutorial by saper on 8 May
Volunteer Marcin Cieslak (saper) is doing the great service of leading a
Git and Gerrit tutorial on May 8th 19:00 UTC. It will be 1-1.5 hours.

If you intend to come, please fill out this poll so saper knows how many
people are coming and what they already know.

Time conversion:

To participate, you'll need to:

* get developer access for Git/Gerrit/Wikimedia Labs
* install a SIP client ("Blink and CSipSimple for Android are
recommended and tested (with HD audio); I'll provide SIP dial-in")
* install vncviewer
* ensure you can ssh from a terminal

Marcin will cover:


setting up Git
submitting a patch
commenting on a patch in Gerrit
merging a patch in Gerrit
enough Git internals not to get lost


local branch, making, working & pushing
remote branch & git-review to that remote branch


cherrypick changes between branches
amending (rebase vs multiple commit)
squashing work from a branch into a commit and pushing it
resolve merge conflicts

Thanks, Marcin!
