Yup.

Any way we could have the "v1.11.0-rc1-1917" portion automatically put into the gerrit review once it's been cherry-picked into master/master-x.x?

Like if a script is currently generating the "Change has been successfully cherry-picked as ..." message, then have it append the 'git describe' output to that message?
