Josh Harlow (original author of taskflow and related libraries) and I
have been discussing the option of moving taskflow out of the openstack
umbrella recently. This move would likely also include the futurist and
automaton libraries that are primarily used by taskflow. The idea would
be to just host them on github and use the regular Github features for
Issues, PRs, wiki, etc, in the hopes that this would spur more
development. Taskflow hasn't had any substantial contributions in
several years and it doesn't really seem that the current openstack devs
have a vested interest in moving it forward. I would like to move it
forward, but I don't have an interest in being bound by the openstack
workflow (this is why the project stagnated as core reviewers were
pulled on to other projects and couldn't keep up with the review
backlog, so contributions ground to a halt).
I'm not sure how using pull requests instead of Gerrit changesets would
help "core reviewers being pulled on to other projects"?
Is this just about preferring not having a non-human gatekeeper like
Gerrit+Zuul and being able to just have a couple people merge whatever
they want to the master HEAD without needing to talk about +2/+W rights?
If it's just about preferring the pull request workflow versus the
Gerrit rebase workflow, just say so. Same for just preferring the Github
UI versus Gerrit's UI (which I agree is awful).
Anyway, it's cool with me to "free" taskflow from the onerous yoke of
OpenStack development if that's what the contributors to it want.
