1) I wrote "contribute to Qt" intentionally there,
    not "use gerrit", because I'm aware of the diff.
    Although no, my unhappiness is not limited to the
    CI; many of my problems are actually linked to
    the way JIRA and gerrit have been made to inter-
    play for auth.

2) I've posted other criticizims of gerrit in the
    thread for a fuller picture of how gerrit adds
    to the unhappiness. Jumping on this bit, hand-
    waving it away and claiming we're now left with
    "gerrit is OK" is incorrect.
