If you want Gerrit, please state it on this bug...

The iplog shouldn't be much of an issue as the git log contains all
the information... i.e...

    Add preliminary synchronization support within Eclipse for branches.

    Implements synchronization participants and resource variants for
    allowing clients to synchronize Eclipse resources against the Git
    index and a given branch.

    Synchronization can be launched for project's context menu by 'Team ->
    Synchronize...' and from 'Repositories View' from branch context menu.

    In 'Synchronize repository' dialog user can choose source and
    destination branch (or tag). He can also define does local uncommited
    changes should be included in 'Synchronize view'.

We have some consistent log messages to ensure that we know who the
author was, who the committer was... if there was a CQ involved... if
there was a bug involved...etc... in the end, all of our iplog
information is generated from the git repository itself, gerrit is
only used to help to figure out who is a committer based on committer

Gerrit shouldn't be required for you to use Git, it should be optional imho.

There are many Git users who don't use Gerrit yet, although I believe
it would be beneficial to have a large instance at Eclipse.
