Bug#590775: consider gerrit instead


I'll very likely package gerrit once the dependencies are packaged.[1] After 
using both tools I consider gerrit much superior. It requires however that you 
use GIT, but I don't consider that a disadvantage. :-)

A comparission of steps necessary to create a review request at the Apache 
Software Foundation with the steps it would take with gerrit:

- create a patch file
- open web interface, log in
- select project
- select patch file
- select reviewer group
- select jira bug (lookup bug number in jira...)
- copy summary from jira issue (or write from scratch)
- enter "." for description
- publish

- include issue number in commit message
- git push gerrit
... That's it? That's it!

Additionally gerrit also triggers jenkins, merges the change in the master 
branch once the review is finished and hosts your GIT repos with access 
control. There's also inclusion in mylyn to let you do reviews from eclipse...
