I did all of that, but surprise the logerrit in core only handles core, no
support for newbees that want to submit patches for different parts.

Please bear over with me, I am trying to follow the instructions to the
letter (as a newbee would), and have already made several changes to the
wiki pages to clarify a couple of pitfalls. My intentions was to work as a
completely new person, which of course included submitting a patch by mail
(since logerrit does not work for lode) and see how it was handled.

with a little git magic (including copying .gitreview) I managed to push my
patch to gerrit:

Looking forward to see if it gets committed.

I actually saw nearly the same, looking at the git repos, and then a nice
person at the hackfest told me to forget it all :-)

Sorry I should have been more strict in my wording, I meant the static
parts, of course source tar balls etc does not belong in git.

A case could be made as to where the script belongs, but I happen to agree
with you that it has a good place.

Sorry for being a pain, I am just trying to get up to speed on how TDF/LO
does things so I later can be better help to new people.
