Are we planning to use Polymer-based UI, as currently used by Chromium and Android,
or the "old" one (which is probably still a default)? I believe "old" one has a horrible UX,
while Polymer one is a bit nicer. Also, Polymer's patch viewer plays nicely with X selection
buffer, while "old" does not.

> Hello,
> We've been working on the Gerrit Upgrade for a while now and we are finally
> getting ready to deploy the new goodness.
> We have all patches in our fork (yes, sadly we continue diverging a bit from
> mainstream, adding our own state handling for the CI).
> The good news is that there are very few changes to Gerrit itself and most of
> the code is now in a self-contained plugin.
> We aim to do the Upgrade to Gerrit 2.16.7 around the 20th of May (yes, that's
> a Monday, we assume Gerrit will be down for the full day that day).
> The plan is to not actually take that long, but we want to make sure things
> actually work after the long wait and there are one or two things we cannot
> test very well without the right domain and everything in place.
> Things look good though and I'm fairly confident that we'll manage the upgrade
> in May.
> We will collect some documentation here, currently it's just a placeholder
> page, not yet worth visiting, unless you know the newer Gerrit and want to
