+1 for Gitbox

I have been watching threads on INFRA list and been waiting to see when a
good time would be to introduce the idea to the community. The Gitbox
project has been going since the end of 2016 and looks as though it might
be ready now as INFRA has begun moving some of their repositories to
GitHub. We still need to 'apply' by submitting a ticket to INFRA and wait
for approval, INFRA could still deny the move.

- GitHub PRs are fully functional (something which stopped us earlier)
- Provides ability to align committer and non-committer workflows
- Removing mirror from Git at Apache to GitHub and thus removing delay in

- Permission mapping is configured on id.apache.org (need to set GitHub ID)

I can't think of many disadvantages to moving to GitBox.

I'm in favor of switching to gitbox. We're already getting pretty much all
contributions from non-committers coming in as pull requests so we might as
well make it easier for us to manage things in github.

One thing that's given me trouble is that the mirroring of ASF git (for
Apache Geode) to github can have a lengthy delay. In other words, after I
commit to ASF git, it's not uncommon for my commit to not show up in the
GitHub mirror right away and I've seen this delay take an hour.

it has just come to my attention that Gitbox at ASF
has been enabling full GitHub workflow (with being
able to click Merge this PR button, etc.) for quite
some time.

This basically allows a project to have GH as a R/W
repo as opposed to R/O mirror of what we all currnently
have: https://gitbox.apache.org/repos/asf

Personally I'm not sure I like GH workflow all that much,
but if there's interest -- you can opt-in into Gitbox. Once
you do -- your source of truth moves to GH. You can't
have it both ways with git-wip-us.apache.org and Gitbox.
