Git: Pushing remote branch to Gerrit

If you use the Gerrit as your code review tool, then follow the below steps for pushing the remote branch to Gerrit.

1. Create a local branch to track for the Remote Branch. Run the below command for the same. 


2. Then try to merge your local branch with master branch to avoid any conflicts. This will be helpful when we merge the master with REMOTE_BRANCH_NAME in the future.

 git merge origin/master 

3. Make the necessary changes in the code and run the below commands to add and commit it. 

 git add . 
 git commit -m "COMMIT_MESSAGE" 

4. Run the below command to push the code to gerrit for the remote branch 

git push gerrit LOCAL_BRANCH_NAME:refs/for/REMOTE_BRANCH_NAME
