Not every developer specializes in every area of development. Our own AdamOutler generally uses Subversion for his development projects. Most kernel and ROM developers use Git, so he was a bit confused when trying to figure out how to “submit a patch to gerrit.” Gerrit simplifies Git based projects mainters’ job by permitting any authorized user to submit changes to the master Git repository. Without Gerrit, all approved changes need to be merged in by hand by the project maintainer. Gerrit functionality enables a more centralized usage of Git.

Nothing is more frustrating than opening up Google Maps and it taking way to long to lock your location. Additionally, slow GPS lock can impact the play-ability of GPS based games such as Ingress.
