Now that glusterfs-8.2 is out, we want to get ahead with the plan to move to GitHub.
We are planning to do that in several steps, but the gist of the plan is the following:
- Starting from some time this week, we will ask people to resubmit the PR to github. We are not moving them automatically, cause we can't map the author to github from gerrit. We will have Jenkins jobs ready for github, and still keep them for gerrit, so folks still have some time to migrate, but please migrate the patch you are working on to gerrit when you push a new revision. You can find more information and the contributing guidelines on the same
We are still keeping a way to come back to gerrit if things go wrong, but it should be ok.
