I've been particularly busy of late, so I haven't had any real time to
look into git or gerrit yet, and I'm probably not going to have any
time to do so for a few more weeks at least.  There are probably
around 200 posts to wireshark-dev about git and gerrit, many with
tidbits of helpful information, but nothing really consolidated.

Being a complete git+gerrit newb, I also would really appreciate a
wiki page with consolidated information for all of the common work
flows that a normal developer as well as a core developer might use.
I assume http://wiki.wireshark.org/Development/Workflow would be the
place for it, and when I finally get going, that's where I hope to start.

I've left that as a kind of overview-discussion of the git migration, and


as a very bare-bones tutorial. Hopefully others will expand it as necessary.

If possible, add some information/basic steps on a few more topics as well?
 For example:
1) How do you undo a commit, or undo part of a commit?
2) How do you apply someone else's patch for testing before committing?
3) How to backport to other trunks?
4) How do you know if someone has a fix or not?  With subversion, they'd
indicate they're running svn r51234, for example, and then you could tell
them that they need to update to at least r52345.  With git, how does this
work with hashes?

I've tried to answer a few of these with a new revision of the page.

If someone could add how to do it on Windows that would be good to

I shall try this evening.

Thanks.  I too develop on Windows primarily.

It should be nearly identical - git and git-review are both fully
cross-platform AFAIK.
