I think there's some confusion here about what the workflow exactly is
at the moment. ASF git is the source of truth here, and nothing goes
into it without a committer putting it there by hand. We use Gerrit as
a tool to do code reviews and to organize the commits, as well as to
facilitate easy testing. However that's all it's used for- we still
clone from repositories that come downstream from ASF, not the other
way around. I'd be interested to understand how this would be
considered any different than what is done with Github Pull Requests.
