I'm not convinced that this is an advantage.  I'd rather have one
central place to look for patches and their status (currently
google code, filtered by "has:Patch" and sorted based on patch
status[1]).  If "not bug fixes" patches aren't listed in the same
place as "bug fix" patches, then we'll have two websites to check
and keep up-to-date.

In short: we already have a global eye on submitted patches,
provided that people use git-cl.  If they don't use git-cl, then
it doesn't matter whether the "backend" is rietveld or gerrit; the
patch will be lost in limbo on lilypond-devel until some kind
developer steps in.

Don't get me wrong: I have nothing against switching the "backend"
from rietveld to gerrit.  I just want to keep the google code

[1] sorry, icky url:

IMO all developers should have this bookmarked.

Ok.  I just want to emphasize that you could easily spend 20 hours
setting this up, but then have the response be "no, we prefer the
old system".

oh, logins just occurred to me.  Can gerrit let people log in with
their google accounts (IIRC there's an api for that), or would we
all need to make new accounts on the gerrit server?
