We've decided to use "gerrit" for our code review system, making it easier for all of us to contribute with code and comments. You'll find our gerrit server running at:
The first thing you would do would be to "sign up" for an account there, before you jump to:
With that in place you should probably jump on IRC and join the
There is a pretty tight relationship between our php driver development and the development of libcouchbase, so for now you have to run the latest versions f both projects to be sure that everything works. I have however made it easy for you to develop on the php driver by using a repo manifest file. If you haven't done so already you should download repo from http://code.google.com/p/git-repo/downloads/list and put it in your path.
All you should need to set up your development environment should be:
trond@ok ~> mkdir sdk trond@ok ~> cd sdk trond@ok ~/sdk> repo init -u git://github.com/trondn/manifests.git -m sdk.xml trond@ok ~/sdk> repo sync trond@ok ~/sdk> repo start my-branch-name --all trond@ok ~/sdk> gmake php
This will build the latest version of libcouchbase and the php extension. You must have a C and C++ compiler installed, automake, autoconf and phpize.
If you have to make any changes in libcouchbase or the php extension, you can just commit them before you upload them to gerrit with the following command:
trond@ok ~/sdk> repo upload
You might experience a problem trying to upload the patches if you've selected a different login name review.couchbase.org than your login name. Don't worry, all you need to do is to add the following to your ~/.gitconfig file:
[review "review.couchbase.org"] username = trond
I normally don't go looking for stuff in gerrit, so you should add at least me (firstname.lastname@example.org) as a reviewer for your patch (and I'll know who else to add and add them for you).
