For 1 and 4, I feel that the benefit of allowing some projects to be hosted
on GitHub (attract & involve community through GitHub's public service)
out-weigh the rule of strict consistency (have everything in oVirt Gerrit).
Any project in oVirt gerrit can be mirrored to GitHub, and most of them are
( see github.com/oVirt
Although, not sure how hard would it be to modify oVirt CI system to
building GitHub hosted projects.
We are supporting it, Lago is an example of such project.
The guidelines should be clear about whether a project must be hosted via
oVirt Gerrit, whether it must have its bugs tracked via oVirt Bugzilla,
I don't think its a must, but its highly recommended IMO, and will help the
Imagine this scenario:
the project grows and uses its own CI/testing frameworks and reaches a
point it wants to join the oVirt eco-system,
At that point it will be much harder to integrate it if at all, assuming
the tools he's been using were not aligned with
the tooling other projects are using.
Also - in terms of release process, its will be very hard to include it in
an official oVirt release if he wishes to do so,
as all oVirt projects are built in the current infra and shipped as a
