I fully agree here! I only now managed to contribute my first patch to
Qt because setting up gerrit really scared me.
I would have moved on to another project if I hadn't been
using+developing KDE for a few years.
After having used it now I think gerrit is a great tool but the
barrier of entry is just too high. Unless that somehow gets fixed I am
strongly in favour of the Phabricator proposal.
