That's a great point. I personally think Gerrit is more efficient, but
it's definitely different from the PR-based approach which the largest
public code forges use (GitHub, Gitlab). Learning Gerrit is totally
worth it if you intend to contribute regularly. It's harder to justify
for a drive-by contribution, so you might miss those because the
drive-by contributor sometimes just won't go through the hassle.
So for a project like ARA which is mostly feature-complete, is not super
busy and would at this point most likely attract drive-by contributions
fixing corner case bugs and adding corner case use cases, I certainly
understand your choice.
