That was to gauge if we can even do this, and we have some semblance of a plan,
before going to devel.

We will not make the change before we reach out to dev list, this bug is more
preparing for the change.

Yes, we are working through that.

- Security: This was raised by Amye as well, and we are *now* considering it

- I did not understand the gerrit and Jenkins not having ACL part, how/what
does that mean?

- Yes, over other conversations it looks like we need to reach and get signoff
before we go live with this thing (if that happens), from other RH stakeholders
as well. This will be done as we solidify this plan.

Hmmm... can we get more specifics about the problems? So that we can evaluate
the same. Also, a person dedicated to the automation needs work!

I will reach out to Rejy downstream to get these parts moving, if maintainers
come to a consensus.

So we need a few ACKs and sign-offs before we go live on this, and I agree,
thanks for raising those flags.

Would it be possible to prototype some changes in gerrit-stage (like the hooks
for example?) so that when devs experience this, it is well known what needs to
be done in the future and we can get better feedback on this.
