I don't now if you are planning to use gerrit, but in our case, git-annex 
didn't work well at all. See [1] below.

We had to go with git submodules, which has a way better support in gerrit, 
and better support for handling branches. We're also adding support for tag 
in .gitmodules, so we can rebuild a tree of all submodules from the 
configuration baseline prior to release, or simply lock the revision of 
submodules not changing often, like 3rd party modules.

Just my 2 cents.
