Fwiw, the Review Board guys are working on a push-based review system,
bascially a gerrit with RB interface. This is a set of extension scripts
usable with RB 2.0, which brings many other features as well, you can watch
a video of it here: http://vimeo.com/86448355. Also, we can even wire our
own "Push" button into RB, it's quite simple from what I understood and
could merge patches for us without needing to do "git push" ourselves

I would personally very much prefer to stay with RB if possible, plus the
devs are really awesome and helpful.
