query about gerrit cherrypick ( and some annoying behaviour ) etc

I found some unreviewed patches of mine and also a patch ( some commits
in the past ) in master that I just wanted to promote for review in 3.6,
it seems that easiest way was to use the mail interface to ask for a
cherry-pick ( or at least I didn't see anything else appropriate on the
wiki ) Is that right, is there no command line interface to do similar?
is there a better way to do that?
After I did that I noticed I was getting spammed by gerrit with
"[CHANGEUPLOAD FAILED] [CHERRYPICK] commit blah blah blah for branch
libreoffice-3-6" type messages indicating there was some problem ( but I
couldn't figure out what the problem was, some example attached, there
were some warnings various things and one error with little/no info )
Strangely I did get some "Change in core[libreoffice-3-6]: blah blah
blah" messages which I presume meant things worked sometimes even before
the corresponding "[CHANGEUPLOAD FAILED] [CHERRYPICK] commit ...." message.
Also strange ( to me ) that I don't see any "[PATCH] " messages send to
the dev list and I assume the patch *is* actually uploaded as it appears
Another annoyance is that the owner of the bug in gerrit ( e.g see
https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/958/ ) is marked as "LibreOffice
gerrit bot" instead of the author of the patch.
Is this the expected way that things work? or did I just make a mess of
things ( if so would be grateful to know what I should have done for
future reference )
