Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Stop using Review Board
Date Mon, 06 Apr 2015 20:16:19 GMT
Since we have consensus, I went ahead and put a message in *all* 71 reviews currently in RB.
I mentioned keeping RB open for another week.

Hopefully, folks who are still actively engage with their reviews will move them to GitHub
Folks who actually have shipped the review need to check if it was actually committed and
then close the review.

I updated the website to mention contribution through PR and linked to the
file from Will.

We should be all set,

Please socialize the idea so that we don’t leave anyone behind. It’s an important shift
that hopefully will simplify giving contributions.

In one week, I will post another message to close this thread. After hiding RB from view (
do note that it won’t be deleted by ASF infra, just unviewable).
