I am curious to see peoples input on using github as a code review
mechanism over gerrit. I see github/openbmc is already used quite well
for sprint planning and issue tracking, I feel like it would make a lot
of sense to use it for doing code reviews. As far as I understand it has
a mechanism to reproduce a similar paradigm to what we currently use
today - as far as Code-Review, Ok-To-Test, and Verified.
I can see github has made several improvements over the last few years
that make it much more use-able to teams like us:
- The ability to have approved maintainers for each specific repository
- It has the ability to do a rebase-merge, keeping the git tree nice and
- A strong API to tie in additional tools that we may need.
Additionally, it will reduce the point of failure from also hosting gerrit.
What are peoples thoughts on using this?
