Well it is only partially off topic, because it is impossible to merge
a db script close to release. A file rename means new CI job and that
can take ages (especially for the engine and the multiple branches we
have). The same what Martin is describing for the engine with FF only
Gating does not necessarily have to mean blocking only, it can contain
an ordering component too.

Well, automated systems are not supposed to make code changes without
humans being aware (see other thread about "ff-only" where "rebase if
necessary" is a counter-example).
What we could do is have the gate fail when colliding scripts show up
(we will also have to use "ff-only" then to ensure changes are
ordered). Actually this test is simple enough for "regular" CI to do,
so no need to wait for the gate...
Anyway, this is not directly related to merge-gating, so a little off-topic IMO.
