Well, there are some things which would be nice to automate in a
bug/regression reporting and review system, related with version
controlling.  You can do side-by-side presentations of images for
certain revision numbers.  It would be nice if somebody reported a
problem introduced in a certain git commit to hyperlink into version
diffs.  If this sort of functionality is available, it gives more of an
incentive to do bisection or similar for pinpointing the problematic

Regression reports for existing regression tests can be put up more or
less automatically.  And a few other things.  No idea just how much
something like Gerrit would help.
