My understanding is that Gerrit is merely a tool for code review, if so,
we'd still need something/Jira for issue tracking.

Ok, this raises a question for me. Assuming that we were to develop an
RTC work-flow that included Git for version control and Gerrit for code
review, would there still be a requirement to attach patches to the Jira

I ask because ASF's Jira has that extra radio button on the attachment
submission page for the contributor to indicate that they grant rights
under the Apache License. I've heard that it's a requirement that
patches be attached to the respective issue in Jira so that that button
can be ticked.
