We are planning to install a new version of our Gerrit ECA validation plugin this week in an effort to reduce errors when a contribution is validated.
With this update, we are moving our validation logic to our new ECA Validation API that we created for our new Gitlab instance.
We are planning to push these changes live on Wednesday, December 9 at 16:00 GMT, though there is no planned downtime associated with this update.
Our plan is to revert back to a previous version of the plugin if we detect any anomalies after deploying this change.
Please note that we are also planning to apply these changes to our GitHub ECA validation app in Q1 of 2021. You can expect more news about this in the new year!
For those interested, the code for the API and the plugin are open-source and can be seen at git-eca-rest-api and gerrit-eca-plugin.
Please use our GitHub issue to discuss any concerns you might have with this change.
