I've seen some of the conversations on dev@cloudstack- but I'll
respond in both lists.

We've had requests for Gitlab, Gerrit, and a few others.
Sometimes (including our own PMC) we've had requests for several
different, somewhat competing solutions for the same project.

We aren't shutting the door on any of these, but we're unlikely to
move quickly on any of them. Currently Infrastructure is working with
the Whimsy PMC to gather data on what a Github-based solution would
look like, and whether it would meet the ASF's requirements. We're
doing this as a limited experiment at the direction of the Board. That
experiment is explicitly limited to the Whimsy PMC.

Infrastructure's preference would be for us to use a Github-managed
solution to repository hosting and management if it can satisfy the
requirements the ASF needs to have met.

That said a number of other projects have taken their need for
Gerrit-like services and are using that externally - so while I can't
personally recommend it, it might be worth looking at AsterixDB and
Impala and see how they are making use of Gerrit.
