Yes, you can submit the patches from your colleagues. There are two
1. Submit patches by yourself on behalf of them with your own email
address, and add this note in the commit description:
Co-authored-by: ... (Other person's name and email address)
2. Add multiple addresses to your Gerrit account, and submit the patches
using the email address you want. This is OK as long as the other email
is available in your Gerrit account. Every email address should be
verified by the owner.
On the other hand, we would be happy to see the people submit their
patches by themselves. The disadvantage of using a proxy for sending
patches is that there would be an indirect communication between the
reviewer(s) and the author. As you know, the author should get involved
in the submission process to do the changes and fixes suggested by the
reviewers before the submission is accepted and merged.
