I like the general idea you have here. I think it will make
collaboration much easier. I would add a word of caution regarding
extra-gentoo infra. Not everyone will want to use these services.
Further, the concept of a "pull request" is a shiny gui wrapper around
git-format-patch and the git-apply/git-am workflow, or so it seems to
I suggest we use g.o.g.o for the proper master and mirror (auto via a
hook) out to various services like github, etc. Then we can easily
merge in changes from any service.
This does bring up an related question regarding the idea of official
(or semi-official) gentoo repos using external service providers. I
note that github has an "organization" called "gentoo" already .
Anyone know about who set this up? Are there other examples of this?
We should use our trademarked name where possible. (I think I will ask
around about the github org bit.)
I would love to see gentoo encourage contrib, in the way you outline
Kacper, all across the project.
