Not sure what you're referring to here?
Having tried to work with Gerrit in the past, I found Rietveld easy
enough to use immediately. I'm not saying that it's the best review
tool I've ever used, but relying on SF for issue management is strictly
worse. And that's something that would not be tackled by switching to

If there are enough people who prefer Gerrit, I'm open to giving it
another try. But if we can get a source hosting that combines all of
git, issues and patch handling, that would simplify things.
