You can do the same with plain git: 
git checkout libreoffice-3-6
git cherry-pick foo
git push ssh://logerrit/core HEAD:refs/for/libreoffice-3-6

see http://gerrit.googlecode.com/svn/documentation/2.2.1/user-upload.html for details

Yes, Id like to have that fixed too.

It seems to me the cherry-picked change was already on the branch, thus no
commit generated by cherry-picking, thus nothing to upload.
