I’m pleased to announce the availability of a new release of gerrymander, version 1.4. Gerrymander provides a python command line tool and APIs for querying information from the gerrit review system, as used in OpenStack and many other projects. You can get it from pypi

# pip install gerrymander

Or straight from GitHub

# git clone git://

If you’re the impatient type, then go to the README file which provides a quick start guide to using the tool.

This release contains a mixture of bug fixes and new features

  • Add command for reporting potentially approvable patches
  • Add command for reporting potentially expirable patches
  • Allow todo list commands to be filtered on filename
  • Remove hardcoded #!/usr/bin/python3 lines
  • Fix traceback on casting unicode strings
  • Allow filtering reports based on topic
  • Fix typo in keyfile setting in example config

Thanks to everyone who contributed patches that went into this new release
