As long time Open Source contributor and heavy GitHub user, I struggle with the contribution process for Go because of the Gerrit workflow and UI. The Gerrit UI and process is very different from GitHub. For example, I got patches stuck for weeks just because the answers to reviews I had written were just drafts and not sent to the reviewer.
So it would very helpful to add:
some basic tutorial for the contributor point of view, with screenshots:
The https://go.dev/doc/contribute#sending_a_change_gerrit section currently explains step by step what it takes to send a change via Gerrit, but it can't cover everything Gerrit offers without also becoming as large as the links I shared above. Gerrit itself is improving and sometimes gets new features (e.g., Attention Set was only added in recent years).
The point I want to make with this is that it could work well to take advantage of Gerrit's own existing documentation in some helpful way, and avoid trying to replace it.
