Yes. Today people can use any mail interface: web, console-based,
graphical. They can use Gmail clients in their phone, or IMAP, or

Requiring everyone to use a web browser would limit the amount of ways
people can review patches. Also, not everyone has javascript enabled
in their browser (I assume Gerrit needs that).

It's not awkward, it's the most sensible way.

You just replied to my mail the same way I would reply to a patch.

Yes, that's bad.

No need to figure anything.

% git config sendemail.to git@vger.kernel.org
% git send-email @{upstream}..

There are no issues. It works for Linux, qemu, libav, ffmpeg, git, and
many other projects.

Nope, they are not.
