Automatically copy coder...@example.com? Denton Gentry 3/28/12 6:57 PM
My organization uses a codereviews alias which anyone can add themselves to, to watch progress or get an idea of current areas of development. We recently started using Gerrit, and I don't see a way to do this automatically. I don't want to ask all developers to cc an email group it every time they request a review, we'd miss a bunch I'm sure.

The Watched Projects function seems relevant, in that I can copy myself on code reviews matching the criteria. Is there a similar function to watch a project on behalf of a Group?

We had exactly the same thing on our group.

What we did when we converted to Gerrit was to create a few system accounts that had the email address of a mailing list.

Using those accounts we subscribed to watch the projects' changes/merges we wanted to broadcast.

Users would then subscribe to the mailing lists that would get the kind of info they're interested about and that saves them a lot of time they'd spend setting up several watch rules in Gerrit.

Hope this is what you're looking for.

Luciano.

Exactly what Luciano said. Since there isn't really a way to do this
from the web UI right now, please open a bug against me to deal with
it.

Filed issue 1311 as a feature request. I can't assign it to anyone, but its in the system.

I assigned it to Shawn.

By the way, -off-topic-, the bug tracker site is really hard to navigate using Chrome on Android 4.0.3. Also, the login on mobile doesn't let me choose between the Corp Google Apps acct or Gmail, like other Gsites do.
