This includes links to other pages which explain how to work with git, but 
I think that it does qualify:

Does it match your requirements?

That page started as an attempt to provide a documentation for existing KDE 
developers, so it does go into depth of how to manualy Cc reviewers. If we 
decide to use Gerrit, then I think it would make a lot of sense to 
intorduce a single-page "Submitting Patches Quickstart" which would just 
describe the absolute basics on one page, including a git primer.
