It is because pushing doesn't update refs/heads/master. Instead, it
starts a code review.
Suppose Gerrit allows starting a new code review by pushing to
refs/heads/master. It sounds okay if I squint --- it's just a very
slow asynchronous ref update, right? Let's see:
$ git clone <gerrit server> test
Cloning into 'test'...
$ echo hi >greeting
$ git add greeting
$ git commit -q -m 'hello'
$ git push origin master
remote: New Changes:
remote: <gerrit server>/r/1234
ea4cb77b..9117390e master -> master
$ : walk away, forget what I was doing
$ git fetch origin
+ 9117390...ea4cb77 master -> origin/master (forced update)
"Wait, why did the remote rewind?"
