Yes, Gerrit is better than github:

Presumably you mean "Gerrit plus a private repository is better than
github", as Gerrit, as far as I can tell, is just software that works
with a Git repository.

Yes, although managing repositories being what Gerrit do, Gerrit
without a least one repository would be a very boring application.

I have started describing a Gerrit based workflow which IMO would fit to
the project at http://wiki.wireshark.org/Development/Workflow . Please
check it and share your opinion.

It would probably be good to include how/where patch submitters would
attach other attachments (e.g., sample captures) that go along with their
patch (I spent a little time going through the Gerrit docs and didn't find
anything like that).  (A large portion of the patches we accept need to
have a corresponding test capture file before anyone will accept it.)

Gerrit does not replace the bug tracker, in fact it complements it, so the
attachments would still be stored in the bug - unless they are used for
something useful for the build, like regression testing, in which case they
would be part of the patchset.

It is possible to configure Gerrit to link automatically to the Bugzilla bugs:

Thank you for the links.
I have added the following to the proposal:
"If you would like to provide an example capture file along with
patch, please open a bug in BugZilla and refer to it in the commit
message (... bug 1234 ...). By attaching the capture file to a bug
will automatically become part of the regression suite and your new
code will be tested very often. "
