If you have patches that are dependent like this:

A -> B -> C -> D

where A is the first patch and B is based on top of A and so forth.

Merging A is not dependent on B. It can be merged any time you have Code Review
and Regression votes.

However, you cannot merge B until A is ready or merged. If A is unmerged, but
is ready to merge, when you merge B, Gerrit will merge them in order, i.e.
first merge A, and B automatically.

Does this answer your question? If it helps, I can arrange for staging to be
online so moe people can test this out.
