Maybe not a prerequisite for a gerrit account (contributors want that
quickly to push a change and you don't want their hard disk die before
;-), but a prerequisite for being able to merge a change. Often enough
when I spot a new name at a change I look up the dev statement and if
not found mention that during review, but I'm also guilty not thinking
of or asking only after merging.
