Thanks for getting this done, Deepshika and Michael, and Infra team members.

Thanks everyone for valuable feedback during this process!

I personally hope this change will help glusterfs project to attract more
developers, and we can engage more closely with our developers!

Note that this would result in weeks of confusions, questions, and bugs in
workflow! We are trying to tune the workflow accordingly! Please try it
out, and give feedback! Once we start using we may figure out new things,
so jump in, and give it a try!

In case of any issues, raise a github issue,  or find some of us on

> Hi folks,
> We have initiated the migration process today. All the patch owners are
> requested to move their existing patches from Gerrit[1] to Github[2].
> The changes we brought in with this migration:
> - The 'devel' branch[3] is the new default branch on GitHub to get away
> from master/slave language.
> - This 'devel' branch is the result of the merge of the current branch and
> the historic repository, thus requiring a new clone. It helps in getting
> the complete idea of tracing any changes properly to its origin to
> understand the intentions behind the code.
> - We have switched the glusterfs repo on gerrit to readonly state. So you
> will not be able to merge the patches on Gerrit from now onwards. Though we
> are not deprecating gerrit right now, we will work with the remaining
> users/projects to move to github as well.
> - Changes in the development workflow:
>     - All the required smoke tests would be auto-triggered on submitting a
> PR.
>     - Developers can retrigger the smoke tests using "/recheck smoke" as
> comment.
>     - The "regression" tests would be triggered by a comment "/run
> regression" from anyone in the gluster-maintainers[4] github group. To run
> full regression, maintainers need to comment "/run full regression"
