Chris, how did you push patch set 2?

Did you push it with the older-style refs/changes/3636 syntax instead
of the newer refs/for/master syntax? The older syntax can cause Gerrit
to fail to make a new change for an ancestor commit, which is what
appears to be the case here.

Gerrit won't let you submit this change without that parent first
being merged, but the parent doesn't exist as a change, and that is
why Robin cannot find it.
