yay, i've been arguing for that before the cherry-pick bot even got 
deployed, see QTQAINFRA-3382. oh, and i filed a gerrit upstream request:

we can do better than that - with a plugin, gerrit supports git-like 
server-side hooks just fine. see 
https://gerrit.googlesource.com/plugins/hooks/ .
alternatively, it'd also possible to monitor the gerrit event stream; 
(that's the mechanism the sanity bot relies on; you can find it in 
qtrepotools//git-hooks/gerrit-bot (that location is historical and 
violates current guidelines)).
