This information could be pared down considerably and presented
much more nicely - and would have to be if we decide to use
gerrit. In addition, kdesrc-build could automate some of the
local setup (Qt's ./init-repository script does as well) to get
people started faster.

I agree the barrier-to-entry with gerrit is high, but I don't
consider that Qt page to be up to our standards if we were to
put serious thought behind communicating the use of gerrit.

Keep in mind though I've raged quite a bit about gerrit's UI
in this thread, and yes, this is part of it. I think gerrit's
useful, but I don't enjoy using it, personally.
