Getting Started for Developers

Genius Design doc

Committers typically do not review changes with build failures; it is the Gerrit Owner's responsibility to get them to build. If you're facing build issues you don't know how to solve, email the app-dev list asking for help (don't just wait and expect committers to notice your proposed change and help you fix its build).

Feel free to email the app-dev list after 1 week of no movement on a (green ticked build passing) Gerrit.
