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.
