Jenkins Gerrit Trigger plugin has a new version  that support

looks like it has a new prolog workflow engine which could be
interesting to utilize to make sure reviewer from multiple sub
components of engine review a patch, etc.
I have no problem upgrading to it, but would feel better if someone will

Eyal - can you do so some sanity checking to this version from your side
(check your flows with doron maybe)?
This can help us trigger tests on gerrit patches only on specific commits.
for example, if we'll have a long test that we don't want to trigger on each
the developer can create a dir/file that jenkins will look for and only trigger the build
if it exists.
Or if we have limited jenkins resources, and we only want to tests one part of the code.

Useful for big gits with lots of smaller modules beneath it.
