Gerrit developers try to do most discussion on the change itself, and
avoid using the mailing list or the bug tracker to discuss something.
But we have a similar opinion that the fractured discussion is not
useful.

It might be interesting to think about having some sort of plugin in
Gerrit that can grab comments from the related bug and include them
interleaved by timestamp with Gerrit events, so the entire discussion
is visible in one place on the Gerrit web UI.
