Hello Gerrit users,

Apologies, if this just isn't the right type of request for this mailing
list...please ignore if so. Graphics person alert...

I've got a slight patch issue and I'm wondering if anyone would like to
shed some enlightenment.

Here is the sequence of events:
1. Created code on a branch and realized that part of the code from a
co-worker was missing
2. Pulled once the code was merged into the repo, saw the change reflected
3. Pushed the branch to Gerrit for review
4. Upon self-review, the missing code had not pushed up
5. Patched the branch, using "git commit --amend", and edited the commit
message, adding the Change-Id of the review
6. Received error that the "! [remote rejected HEAD -> refs/for/master
(squash commits first)", and "error: failed to push some refs to 'ssh://"...

I have done a search on this and read about patches in Gerrit, but am not
seeing a particular explanation for why I'm getting the error and
apparently being asked to squash commits. Usually I add changes to a review
shortly after I've created it, and it often goes straight to the review
magically, not requiring extra effort from me unless it's been more than a
few hours.
