The thing that Gerrit excels at is tracking the different versions of a
given patch, being able to easily diff versions, etc.  And then mark a
patch as merged once it's committed to master.

Patchwork doesn't have this capability built-in (AFAIK).  You can try to
do some automation, but I doubt that any system based solely on getting
patches from a mailing list can ever be as good as something like Gerrit
for this.
