Hi all,

I was wondering if Whamcloud had any plan to upgrade its Gerrit's UI.

I am only asking because when you compare two different versions of the 
same patch, it often happens that some of the differences are not part 
of the patch itself, but rather introduced by other commits that have 
landed upstream between the two versions. The current UI makes those 
indistinguishable from "actual" changes.

The latest UI -- which can be seen in action on GerritHub 
<review.gerrithub.io> -- uses a different color to highlight changes 
that are not directly introduced by the patch being reviewed.

There are other perks to using the latest versions (such as reviewing 
files directly from a patch's "main page"), and of course, there are 
also a few things that some might not find to their liking, but I think 
the pros outweigh the cons.
