Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Enforce Gerrit for Simrel?

By the way, some time ago, we discussed the idea of policies about contributing immutable URLs and fully qualified versions to Simrel, in order to provide predictability and reproducibility. Have these ideas been abandoned? If we were to enforce review, we could put additional checks to verify at least that versions are fully qualified.

The planning council has made this a requirement for Neon. I'm not sure how enforceable this is going to be but if everyone follows the rules, the aggregate build will be reproducible.
Good. I wasn't aware of that. That's a major step forward.
However a quick lookup on b3aggrcon files shows that many (probably the majority) of contributions seems to ignore that rule; as they either don't specify a versionRange or specify a versionRange in a [a.b.c,x.y.z] way.

The SimRel rules are very good, but here is an example of how they get ignored. My idea with Gerrit is that by enforcing Gerrit reviews, we'll make it easier to enforce such rules.
