Before updating to 3.8.0, make sure to backup /var/lib/gerrit (or rename it).

It was erroneously marked as a temporary directory and was going to be wiped out sooner or later anyway, as has happened with AndrewD. The blessed way is using StateDirectory/CacheDirectory/etc (see man systemd.exec).

We have noticed the data in /var/lib/gerrit being periodically deleted, approximately once a month, requiring restore from backup.

I think the problem is gerrit.tmpfiles includes "D /var/lib/gerrit - gerrit gerrit", indicating this directory needs periodic cleanup. I suspect this should be managed in an install script instead? I've manually deleted this line from /usr/lib/tmpfiles.d/gerrit.conf on our system to see if this resolves our issue.

I tried my hand at rewriting the install script by separating the user/group creation/deletion logic out into separate sysusers and tmpfiles config files. Please let me know if this works, thanks!

lmartinez-mirror: I just had crashes due to java-runtime at v16. Reverting to v11 (as per the docs) fixes the issue.

Upstream documentation says this package is not compatible with java-runtime>=13, please let me know if this is not the case before I change the dependencies to reflect this.

Build is broken for me at the moment due to sha256 mismatch between PKGBUILD and gerrit-3.3.2.war source?

i had the funniest of installation errors today with this package ^^ my name is Gerrit Großkopf and my username is gerrit, meaning, the installer can't create a group called gerrit since that name is allready in use ^^

Hello, I have found a couple issues: 1. After Gerrit is installed says: To initialize gerrit, see That link is broken and it should be says: To initialize gerrit, see 2. The new Upstream URL is: Thanks!
