Gerrit is not intended to work with private branches.
It is set up for reviewing changes that go into official gromacs branches.

You can set up a private git repository on the gromacs server instead.
The policy is now that only branches scheduled for merge into a release
are in the main repository, all others should be in private repositories.
But this doesn't seem to be documented yet.
