Hi, With  merged, we now have people working on creating external plugins for devstack.
I worry about use of arbitrary external locations as plugins for gate jobs. If a plugin is hosted externally (github, bitbucket, etc) we are introducing a whole host of problems when it is used as a gate job. Lack of CI testing for proposed changes, uptime of the remote end, ability to accept contributions, lack of administrative access and consequent ability to recover from bad merges are a few. I would propose we agree that plugins used for gate testing should be hosted in stackforge unless there are very compelling reasons otherwise. To that end, I've proposed  as some concrete wording. If we agree, I could add some sort of lint for this to project-config testing.
