I just found out how that works! (Sorry for the dumb question)

Actually gerrit track all the reviews with Change-Id, so it's possible
to have a stack of commits, and push the branch to gerrit, all
associated reviews will get updated. Neat!

Now i have to sort out the reverse operation: How to pull the
said-branch, when it has changed on gerrit.
Typical use case is with 2 clones: say, one at work and one at home.
