The nice thing about gerrit is that you really can't break anything. You
can submit a change for review but a 2 gmx core developer need to approve
the change before it is being included in the official source repository.
Also it lets us easily comment on code changes. Additional it tracks author
ship so that one can later see that you helped with that change.

We have quite a bit information on Git and Gerrit:
http://www.gromacs.org/Developer_Zone/Git/Git_Tutorial and
http://www.gromacs.org/Developer_Zone/Git/Gerrit . Feel free to ask if
something isn't clear.

The patch file at
http://spule.compch.tu-freiberg.de/~wahab/gromacs/Build/src.diff.txt seems
not to be for the 4.6 version. It patches refdata.cpp which is only in the
master branch. The master branch is going to be 5.0. So if you want 4.6,
you need to get the release-4-6 branch.

It would be great if you could put it at
http://www.gromacs.org/Documentation/Installation_Instructions/Windows when
it is done.
