Yes. In case anyone missed the other responses you need to stop
authenticating using your Google account and switch to another account
before April 20. I've added a notice to the login page.

In the near term we need to find a list of stable OpenID 2.0 providers
that we can recommend on the login page. In the long term we need to
find a more stable way of authenticating to Gerrit.


And is there any possibility of Gerrit supporting Open ID 2.0 Connect which is what Google+ supports and seems to be the future for Open ID?  The Gerrit issues tracker is very confusing on this.
