Wireshark-dev: [Wireshark-dev] Gerrit versus Buildbot

Just had the unpleasant experience of having a patch submitted to gerrit where it sat for nearly one month, just got merged after a code review, then got reverted when buildbot revealed issues.

When I have submitted to other gerrit-based projects like OpenOCD, they have an automated build system connected (IIRC it's a standard thing called Jenkins) that provides a +1/-1 to trap build-related issues immediately after submission.  Any reason why wireshark doesn't do this?

Alternately, is there a way for submitters to access build-bot so we can proof changes prior to merge (or better yet, prior to submission)?
