You know, it really depends how the project wants to be run. A linear
history is helpful when trying to bisect things

Gerrit also can force you to refer every change which is nice so
things don't slip through the cracks.

Like with anything, there's plusses and minuses and Eclipse projects
should have the right to choose the way that works for them :)
