From the looks of it [1] Gerrit upstream is planning to just drop

From the link given above:

* You are already registered and you are using Google OpenID provider: You need to move to a new provider before April 20, 2015.
Migrating away from Google OpenID and linking multiple OpenIDs

When you already registered with Google, you need to link your existing Gerrit account to another OpenID provider to be able to log in to Gerrit after April 20, 2015.
Note: if you don't use Google as your OpenID provider, (or use say 
Fedoraproject, Launchpad, ...), you don't need to take any action.
The exact steps how to link another identity to an existing account 
(please re-read twice before taking any action):
* Login with the existing account
* Select menu Settings → Identities
* Click the 'Link Another Identity' button
* Select the OpenID provider for the other identity
* Authenticate with the other identity
* Log in using the other identity can only be performed after the linking is successful
*Warning I*

Users wishing to link an alternative identity should *NOT* log in separately with that identity. Doing so will result in a new account being created, and subsequent attempts to link that account with the existing account will fail. In cases where this happens, the administrator will need to manually merge the accounts.
*Warning II*

You must link another identity before April 20, 2015. Otherwise you wouldn't be able to log in to your existing Gerrit account.
