I have to agree. Whenever I need to do a change for Qt I need to google for 
how to do it. Including putting serious thought in how the push command must 
look like, how I need to adjust the examples provided and for which 
ref/for/foo it has to be this time. This is something which seriously concerns 
me with the outlook of gerrit. git has a steep learning curve, gerrit adds 
quite some further steepness to it :-(
