Ack, thanks, never realized it did this much.
On CentOS 7 I was just using git from SCL which was 2.18.
So it's easy to work around still.

Patience as we figure out how to address those on a new Gerrit installation is much appreciated. If you're interested in hacking on Java and Javascript we'd love help with the plugins necessary to address the known problems. You should be able to build this out locally without any special access. Please let us know if you are interested and we can help you bootstrap.

Upstream docs on developing those can be found here: https://gerrit-review.googlesource.com/Documentation/pg-plugin-dev.html. I've also set up a simple testing platform on my desktop using docker-compose which works pretty well. You should be able to do similar in order to test any plugin development that happens. We can coordinate off list on what that looks like if you are interested.

This week is obviously a no-go but I would be eager to coordinate.
Could you share your workflow?
