[gmx-developers] Patch bonanza at gerrit. How to merge all that stuff?

it seems like Erik and Teemu are working on a big C++ overhaul of many 
low level and old code. This is great and long overdue. However, the 
amount of patches is rather overwhelming, there are more than 100 open 
patches from 2015 in gerrit right now, and many patches are related to 
each other.

Is there a way that we can facilitate merging patches without 
jeopardizing quality of the commits? For instance it is not trivial 
where one should start commenting? How do we decide what goes into 5.1 
and what doesn't or has that been decided already?
