I'm using magit and magit-gerrit, for easy changes, and reviews it works well, but I cannot figure out how to add a new patchset to a change that it is in gerrit

  • It might be better to ask the author of magit-gerrit directly. The author might not use this site and maybe there are also only few of its users on this site.

  • If you actually did what I suggested, then you should reproduce the answer that was given to you here, in your own words.

I don't know anything about gerrit (yet), but after just scrolling through magit-gerrit.el and noticing that new reviews are created using magit-gerrit-create-review, which uses magit-gerrit-push-review, which simply does git push ..., I would assume that you can (and apparently are expected to) just push to the same branch as before using regular git/magit push commands.


As suggested by Tarsius. A simple gerrit-push-review does the trick. For this answer I believe that is pretty important to understand this answer as well

Let's supose that we have something like this:

Head:     master add important line
Merge:    origin/master little nonsense

Reviews (1)
25249     add important line                                                                                                               Antonio Querol

Unmerged into origin/master (1)
5c960ac master add important line

Then the reviewer told me that I need to add a paths set to this line

Since is the alst commit I made the shanges in the code and then ammend it, like this:

Stage the changes and then over the changes press c and then a to ammend the last commit. Edit what you want, the message of the commit or type C-c C-c to finish it.

Then over the commit push R and P so now in gerrit you can see the path for the line
