Right, and I have managed to get a couple of multi-patch changes
through the Gerrit review process in the past but I found it very
difficult to find out how to achieve it and I expect the same thing
will happen again next time I need do it.

This likely isn't a problem for people that use Gerrit on a day
to day basis (once familiar with the processes).

So I guess my point is that something specific for new adopters is
needed in the documentation, but of course I could be just plain
thick so maybe it's not worth worrying about, ;)

I also haven't looked at the links you provided so maybe I making
noise about nothing at all, OTOH those likes look a bit familiar
