Ah, yeah.  There is even a custom setting in gerrit.config's “[gitweb]” section
in that effect: “revision = "?p=${project}.git;a=commitdiff;h=${commit}"” :-)

Done on our gerrit stage instance (https://vm178.documentfoundation.org/); will
do the same thing on the prod instance next time we have to restart the service.

It does indeed, but it's a bit hidden :-P


How attached are you to the search form?  We could definitely add one to
the template, but for now I only changed it (on the stage instance) to
make authors & committers clickable on the relevant views, and filter on
their email:

    commit        https://vm178.documentfoundation.org/plugins/gitiles/help/+/master
    commitdiff    https://vm178.documentfoundation.org/plugins/gitiles/help/+/master%5E%21
    log (oneline) https://vm178.documentfoundation.org/plugins/gitiles/help/+log/master/
    log (full)    https://vm178.documentfoundation.org/plugins/gitiles/help/+log/master/?pretty=full
