Openstack is a bit different because almost every contributor is being paid to work on it. That means that they don’t have to worry (as much) about on boarding pain because those people are being paid to sit there and learn how to use the tooling. CPython on the other hand is almost entirely worked on by volunteers so on boarding pain is very likely to just have people drop off instead of trying to learn the toolchain.
There is close to zero chance I would have gotten into CPython while sitting on my couch in the evenings if it used Gerrit. This is actually a pretty big worry I have with a Gerrit-using project I work on, in that we're only ever going to attract insiders instead of having users get involved.
