Cloning repo and URL
If the URL of the remote repository you would like to experiment with is known, it can be cloned by running the following command in your terminal:
git clone <URL>
Here is a full list of repositories: https://gerrit.git.wmflabs.org/r/admin/repos. To clone a repository from this list, click on its name, and run the
git clone command listed on the next page.
git clone https://gerrit.git.wmflabs.org/r/test11 git clone https://gerrit.git.wmflabs.org/r/test10 git clone https://gerrit.git.wmflabs.org/r/test9
Commit and push changes
Once you have committed your changes, you can push them to Gerrit using
git review. For details on installing and using git-review, check the Gerrit tutorial. If you have git-review installed, you can run:
git review -R
Alternatively, if the origin remote is a Gerrit link (which would be the case if you cloned a repository using the command listed here) you could run the following command to have your changes show up on Gerrit:
git push origin HEAD:refs/for/<branch-name>
