From my POV, I find that Gerrit makes contributing more complicated than it is with Bugzilla:
1. It requires additional configuration and understanding of Git and Gerrit. For non daily Git-users, this can be a real effort.
2. It is difficult to follow and participate to discussions across Gerrit and Bugzilla: I often don't know where a comment is the most relevant. Bugzilla or Gerrit? Tracking is more scattered.
3. And finally, patches have to go on Bugzilla for Eclipse IP process.

I am also doubtful about Gerrit at Eclipse. The lack of integration with Bugzilla and Eclipse IP process (which only support the concept of patches) make it require some extra-work for low added-value. I think it tends to slow-down contribution lifecycle and is a complicated step that may prevent some contributors from going further.
