Both those things are "things employed by users for their systems".

Neither of those things are integral to any workflow, and are entirely

But when you file a bug, you rely on bugzilla being maintained by
Gentoo Infra, not some 3rd party.

And when you file a keyword/stable request, you rely on a
bugzilla-integrated functionality through nattka to check and verify

Subsequently, whether or not you opted into this, nattka is now
critical to the workflow of everyone doing keywording/stable requests.

You can't really say that about pkgcore or openrc.

But you can say that about the QA Automated Testing service, which
mangles gentoo.git and creates sync/gentoo.git, and reports when people
broke the tree.

And that *uses* pkgcore.

But I'm pretty sure that infrastructure lives on gentoo "somewhere",
and if it doesn't, it should.
