|[wtp-dev] Plans for Gerrit?|
There is an ongoing discussion on Twitter about contributions to WebTools, and it seems indeed that webtools is not a very welcoming project for contributors. Not that contributions are not welcome, but more that contributors will probably find difficult to contribute and some are disappointed to see their contributions forgotten (example https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=247312 ).
So what are the plans to move WebTools projects to Gerrit? All projects that moved to Gerrit have seen a boost in their amount and diversity of contributors. I guess we all obviously want that for WebTools.
Moving to Gerrit is pretty simple: it's just a matter of asking webmaster and using a new push URL. It's not intrusive as committers can be allowed to still push directly to master without a review.
The more difficult part is to update the documentation, but that's far from being a showstopper.
So what are the plan? What are we waiting for?
