The precheck button could allow for some degree of customization regarding how the CI dry-run should happen.
For instance, one may want to select:
- only a subset of platforms to build upon
- whether to checkout or cherry-pick the commit on top of the target branch
- whether to build only, or build+run tests
And so on.
Probably adding a full blown UI into Gerrit is overkill for this task, but how about having a Precheck Bot that one can add to the review, and then leave a comment to trigger the precheck run?

Kudos to Alexandru Croitor for the idea.
