Gerrit 2 is a ground-up rewrite of Gerrit, using GWT (Google Web

In the last 10 years, Shawn's vision and goal was to provide a high quality (J)Git
based code review system with a flexible workflow that can be equally used for
open source projects as well as companies and he worked with great dedication
in the last 10 years to achieve that goal.
He inspired all of us to follow him on that way.

Shawn Code Review or just SOP-Review to forever honor Shawn's founding
role in this project.
Thank you Shawn, you will always be in our hearts!
