I'm here requesting of gerrit support in gentoo. I'm capable of writting ebuild for gentoo, but not quiet familiar with java, so any help would be grateful.

I have a very nasty gerrit-bin ebuild in my 'graaff' overlay that will probably eat your reviews, but it might be a start of something.

CCing spanky, because he makes propaganda for gerrit on dev ML

gerrit is packaged with buck [1]. As far as we (Java team) are concerned, we have no interest in packaging buck for Gentoo solely for one project. The Java world uses either ant or Maven, and the Google folks offer no other alternative but buck :/. At this point, I'd recommend using the java-pkg-simple eclass to write the gerrit ebuild, if we want to build it from source. It'd be a tad more difficult though.
