Sounds like a really good idea, should improve the collaboration a lot I think.
Thanks for bringing this up, guys!

would be for everyone to

 Not a big deal for anyone

pull requests, this can be easier.

DK> 3) This also allows use of the “Close” button on the pull requests for requests
that won’t be merged.   No more “bogus/empty” commits to close a PR

DK> 4) It also would allow assigning reviewers and labels and such the PR’s.   We’ve
never really used those (since

DK> Anyway, would anyone object if I filed a ticket to migrate?   I don’t see any major
downsides as it’s just a URL

even if we agree to file the ticket, it doesn’t mean INFRA will approve it.
