There are no dependencies  (AFAIK)

I have gmail tag all my gerrit email, so I set 'tag=OpenStack/review' in
gerrit-gmail.conf, and every morning I run './gerrit-gmail.py -a -r' to see
the list of abandoned patches, and then './gerrit-gmail.py -r' to see the
list of merged patches.  And if anything catches my eye I click on the link
to see the gerrit patch.  This way the number of unread gerrit emails
reflects only the list of patches I should be reviewing.

Unfortunately I didn't clearly document how to set up gerrit-gmail to use
gmails oath2, but the links at the bottom of the readme take you through
the steps.

If you have any further questions on how to use it don't hesitate to ask.
