We tried it and gdb and then abandoned it.  We tried to integrate it
into the traditional gdb development style, having it send email to
gdb-patches.  I found these somewhat hard to read and in the end we
agreed not to use it.

I've come around again to thinking we should probably abandon email
instead.  For me the main benefit is that gerrit has patch tracking,
unlike our current system, where losing patches is fairly routine.

It essentially has to be mandated, IMO.

For GCC this seems somewhat harder since the community is larger, so
there's more people to convince.
