Basically, yes. As far as I've seen it syncs status for any changes
on projects to which you've explicitly subscribed, as well as any
for which your account is the owner in Gerrit. I believe it will
also include changes which are in its DB because you've directly
loaded them, but does not automatically sync/update status changes
for those unless you view and refresh them manually. I tend to work
around this by subscribing Gertty to all the projects in which I
regularly participate.

It's software, so probably. That said, I expect Gertty would need
some sort of first-class dashboard support where it knows (beyond
simple keybindings for arbitrary queries, maybe similar to how it
treats owner:self changes?) that you want all changes for dashboards
pulled into the local DB and kept in sync so that it has them
available for offline operation... not sure what impact that may
have on performance either.

And of course you'd need to convince its author this is a worthwhile
behavior change, since there may be good reasons it was designed to
work this way from the outset. I'll bring this thread to Jim's
attention once he's around today; he will doubtless have more
accurate details and concrete suggestions than I.
