Description Peter Bena 2012-03-22 10:27:06 UTC

Is there any better documentation for gerrit on labs? I need to change few config files, but I can't even check out the correct repository

git clone ssh://

gives me a bunch of files which doesn't even look as configs we use on labs. How do I switch to correct one? Where do I find nrpe_local for nagios we use on labs?

I need to implement new check, that means 1 new file and 1 change to template of nrpe
Comment 1 Peter Bena 2012-03-22 10:35:43 UTC
Ok, I found resolution for this problem:

git rebase test

this switch me to test version we use on labs

However I think we should improve the docs we have on labs though

As with all docs-related bugs, added dependency to bug 1.
Comment 3 Dereckson 2012-06-18 12:39:07 UTC
I must confess I'm very attempted to work on an handbook like the FreeBSD ones:

If the scope is git/gerrit/workflow, it would be something like:

If the scope is broader, it would be something like:

(I'm very tempted)
Comment 5 Quim Gil 2012-11-28 07:19:56 UTC
See also Bug 36437 - A strict and correct Git workflow document is needed 

What we miss now is less docs, not more.  :)
Comment 6 Dereckson 2012-11-28 10:31:08 UTC
This is maybe why I offered to write a *consolidated* documentation.
Comment 7 Quim Gil 2012-11-28 17:10:33 UTC
Ok ok  :)  I'll try to get a Outreach Program for Women candidate for this consolidation work, and then you could mentor her (if approved) instead of having to do all the work all by yourself.

Is there a related microtask that I could ask the candidate to do here and now?
Comment 8 Quim Gil 2013-03-05 23:12:00 UTC
What do you need? Please be precise. Ugliness is an unclear concept.  :)

There is - which should contain only Labs specific info and link to & related mw.o pages for all the rest.
Comment 9 Quim Gil 2013-04-23 14:23:18 UTC
No more complaints. Resolving as FIXED. Please reopen if you disagree, pointing to specific problems. Thank you!
