Hey, I'd like to propose a lot of changes here, now that we'll work with a single master branch on Gerrit. I'll leave some comments in bold & italic.
Release branches (e.g. 1.0.x)
We could add some note about stability of the first release from a branch, e.g. like Linux say that only the first point release is stable. I'd bet, though, that it won't make a difference in practice: The quality of point releases is always better, not matter how you advertise it.
Maybe reword, mention where reviews may happen (I think we should ask each contributor on the ML / github if he agrees to switch to Gerrit). Btw. is there a option in github to send emails, like we have it on flashrom-gerrit?
Adding/reviewing a new flash chip
Keep, actually TLDR; maybe move somewhere else
