Re: [eclipse-pmc] Gerrit submit strategies proposal

+1 I don't think that the rebased changes are reviewed again and
again, committers just have to wait a long time to get a merge window
and that is demotivating.

Now that our committer and contributor community activity has hugely
increased, we should remove that demotivating approach.

Reality though is that no one rebases his change multiple times and wait for gerrit again just because another commit went in, I've tried and in platform.ui I gave up on 3rd rebase and just pushed it right after rebase. But even this generated one more totally useless gerrit build.
