fx gerrit-submit

Submits chains of CLs to Gerrit

usage: submit.py [-h] [--host HOST] [--num-retries N] [-n] [-t] [--ignore-comments] CL

Submit a chain of CLs, specified by giving the CL number of the end of the
chain. The command will poll indefinitely until the chain is submitted or an
error is detected.

The tool can be safely cancelled at any time. When restarted, it will resume
where it left off.

For example, given a chain of three CLs:

  101: Start hacking on 'foo'.
  102: More hacking on 'foo'.
  103: Finish hacking on 'foo'.

The command:

  fx gerrit-submit 103


  1. Add a CQ+1 vote to all the CLs, to start testing them.
  2. Add a CQ+2 vote for the first CL, and wait for it to be submitted.
  3. Add a CQ+2 vote for the second CL, and wait for it to be submitted.
  4. Add a CQ+2 vote for the last CL, and wait for it to be submitted.

Adding a CQ+1 to every CL at the beginning speeds up submission: CQ won't
need to re-test intermediate CLs if they are not modified in the meantime.

If any CL is not ready to submit (for example, it is missing a vote, or has
unresolved comments), the tool will abort early.

By default, the tool will use the "fuchsia-review.googlesource.com" Gerrit
instances. Other instances can be specified using the "--host" parameter:

   fx gerrit-submit --host myteam-review.googlesource.com 12345

positional arguments:
  CL                 Gerrit CL to submit. May either be a CL number or Gerrit

optional arguments:
  -h, --help         show this help message and exit
  --host HOST        Gerrit host to connect to.
                     Defaults to "fuchsia-review.googlesource.com".
  --num-retries N    number of times to retry a failed submission.
                     Defaults to 0.
  -n, --dry-run      If specified, show the set of CLs that would be
                     submitted, but dont actually submit.
  -t, --batch        If specified, dont prompt before starting submit.
  --ignore-comments  If specified, allow submission of CLs that still have
                     unresolved comments on them.
