You can think of Gerrit as Rietveld v2

This somewhat off-topic, but the main reason people dislike Gerrit is
that it requires contributors to put a Change-Id line in the bottom of
the commit message, see eg.

As one reworks the series of commits, the ChangeId is kept in place.
This has the advantage that you can track how a proposed change
evolves across the review process, and that you can easily submit
multi-part changes for review. In the above, I sent a stack of 7
commits for review at once.

Working with a single commit requires using commit --amend and with
multiple commits requires using rebase -i, both of which Git newbies
seems a little scared of.
