What appears to be missing is a "normal" (not Gerrit-triggered) bot 
running that setup on master, so that a broken master wrt that setup can 
be spotted (and acted upon) more quickly.

Today, a broken master is only spotted when somebody tracks down a 
broken Gerrit build to be due to a broken master (or when somebody doing 
their own local build with a sufficiently similar setup spots it).  That 
can delay fixing unnecessarily, causing many developers to meanwhile 
base their Gerrit changes on a broken master.
