This plugin triggers builds on events from the Gerrit code review system by retrieving events from the Gerrit command "stream-events", so the trigger is pushed from Gerrit instead of pulled as scm-triggers usually are.
Various types of events can trigger a build, multiple builds can be triggered by one event, and one consolidated report is sent back to Gerrit.
Multiple Gerrit server connections can be established per Jenkins instance. Each job can be configured with one Gerrit server.
You should have no problem running the plugin on a Windows server. The maintainers' development, tests and production environments are Ubuntu 12.04 so we have no means of detecting or fixing any Windows issues, but there are some kind contributors who provides win fixes every now and then.
The plugin depends on a gerrit-events component that used to be part of this project but later broken out. Although we will try to avoid it, sometimes you might need to mvn install it locally if dependant changes there haven't been released yet.
The (build-config) directory contains "special" CheckStyle configurations and the build will fail during the verification phase if you don't follow them.
mvn clean package
