My reading of the gerrit group thread for design of Gerrit v3 is that
notedb is slated for v3.

Currently we are running 2.8 and working on upgrading to 2.11.

If folks are willing to help build Gerrit v3, that is wonderful. If you
would like to talk to Khai on how to get started contributing to Gerrit,
I'm going out on a limb here and will guess he will be supportive of
your efforts.
