git-nit

A git command for fixing nit-picky changes on gerrit reviews.

git-nit is a tool that helps grabbing existing reviews on gerrit and layering on a new patch to fix nits.

Normally review comments are left on the patch in the web UI or via gertty. For really small suggestions, however, it is nicer to just propose the update either as a new revision of a patch or as a follow-up patch. git-nit helps you do that by making it easier to grab the patch being reviewed in a local copy of the repository. It automates the steps of cloning the repository to a new directory, configuring git-review, then downloading the patch in question. Running one command will set you up to help the person whose code you are reviewing.

Installing

Install git-nit with pip:

$ pip install --user git-nit

Using

To clone a patch to a local working directory, pass the URL of the patch as the first argument.

$ git nit https://review.openstack.org/#/c/564559/

The URL argument can use the /#/c "fragment" form or it can use the simplified form https://review.openstack.org/564559/.

It can also include a patchset number if the goal is to download a draft older than the most recent patchset.
