An essential Git plugin for Gerrit

One of the frequent complaints about Gerrit is the esoteric syntax of pushing a change for review:

git push origin HEAD:refs/for/master

Translated, that means to push your current HEAD ref to a remote named origin and to a special review ref (for master).

If you’re a Gerrit user, you need this plugin:

https://github.com/openstack-infra/git-review

It automates some of the Gerrit syntax so now you can just run:

git review

The only problem is that when you push to a non-Gerrit repository you start to wonder why your review command doesn’t work anymore.  That’s how deeply ingrained code review is to the Gerrit workflow.
