  Gerrit reads this list, but generally speaking, for distribution-specific
patches you should probably contact the maintainer of the package directly.
(Which, in your case, is Gerrit, unless he has found another maintainer to
delegate the packages to.)

  If you have questions related to supervision or the way runit works, not
about the packaging, here is the right place to ask them. ;)
