Moving Active Changes from Gerrit to GitHub

As we transition to using GitHub to host the gem5 project, we need to have a way to move any active changes from Gerrit onto GitHub for review. If your change won’t be ready to be merged by the time Gerrit becomes read-only, follow the steps below to create a pull request with your changes for review on GitHub.

If you’re a first-time contributor to the gem5 GitHub repository, you will need a positive review of your pull request before any continuous integration tests can be run. For your change to be merged, you need both the positive review, as well as for these tests to pass. Finally a gem5 maintainer will squash and merge your changes once all prior checks pass.
