About this page

This page lists all the plugins known to the Gerrit project, with their compatibility status across the supported version branches. The list includes the core plugins.

Some plugins might be missing from this page. Contributions to add them are welcome, if needed.

Maintenance of plugins

These plugins are made by different parties and maintained to varying degrees, therefore the Gerrit project does not guarantee their reliability. However, many are reliable and valuable integrations across Gerrit deployments. The matrix detailed below lists the maintainers for every maintained plugin.

There is a parent component for plugin-specific components/issues in Monorail.

Community members are welcome to propose themselves as plugin maintainers. This can be done through the support mailing list:

  1. Volunteering can be done for either plugins with no maintainers or plugins with just a few (or more) maintainers. Volunteering for unmaintained plugins is of course preferred. Maintainership comes with ownership expectations and responsibilities.
  2. Maintainership is discussed privately by the current plugin maintainers, or the core maintainers if none.
  3. The resulting verdict is then shared within the initial proposal (mailing) thread. Both the initial (new maintainer) proposal and verdict are shared transparently thus professionally that way.

Plugin builds

There are build ci-scripts for most plugins. Each script builds that plugin against all the branches it supports.

Some plugins don’t have branches but still support them, through their master branch.

That CI is the public service that offers the download of pre-built plugin jar files.

Compatibility matrix

Below, each plugin name has a link to that plugin’s README page. A summary of the plugin description is shown (first sentence, or ‘⃞’ if none).

Contributions to provide descriptions or update existing ones are welcome.

The last known plugin activity state (ACTIVE shows as ✅, READ_ONLY as 🔒) and number of recent changes in the last 3 months is also shown.

Each branch name links to the corresponding CI jobs view, for the current build status.

  • The last captured build result shows in the CI column next to that branch.
  • Jenkins SUCCESS results show as ✅ while FAILURE or else show as ❌.
  • Otherwise, ‘⃞’ shows if CI doesn’t build a specific plugin branch or version.
    • Contributions to propose building those are also welcome if needed.
    • Fixing the failing builds is of course as welcome, first and foremost.
  • Plugin tests are currently not executed by the formal Gerrit project CI.

Plugins either

  • have a formal branch matching that Gerrit version (✔),
  • or don’t have that branch (⃞); again, versions may still build using master.
  • ‘⃞’ shows across for inactive plugins.

Plugins compatibility with each Gerrit version depends on their current CI build results.

Those build results likely change over time; this matrix is their last snapshot. The matrix was last updated on Wednesday 01 April at 12:52:24 GMT.
