Re: [ui-best-practices-working-group] Information/Material

I have to say with GitHub's new reviewing workflows, I now prefer it over Gerrit.

It's not so much about the review vs pr workflow - although Gerrit is kind of an alien to a majority of Git users compared to GitHub. This really is about visualization. Neither cgit nor Gerrit offer anything near the capabilities of browsing and visualizing content. I see this as a critical feature.
That's a solid argument.
If we want published content with Gerrit, it means we have to deploy the content to www.eclipse.org, have a whole dedicated site, deliver HTML/CSS.
If we go on GitHub, then content is presented nicely and browseable "for free", we deliver markdown and asciidoc.
GitHub seems to provide us a better "time to market" than Gerrit.

Thatâs well put. Time to market is key here IMHO.

I work with so many github repos itâs become natural to expect a good README.md file thatâs laid out well with all the information I need. I could understand hesitation if thatâs not in your daily experience. I at least ask the Gerrit crowd to look around Github to get a good sense of it, especially Gunnarâs repo and see if that changes your mind.

I think itâs also important to understand Github from a UX guidelines perspective as well along with other common environments our IDE users use in their daily lives. We need to make sure Eclipse fits seamlessly into that world.
