Hyperledger Fabric GitHub Migration
Brett T Logan <brett.t.logan@...>
The time has finally come. The Hyperledger Fabric maintainers are planning for a migration of the core Fabric repository to GitHub this Friday morning Eastern Standard Time.
We are asking that effective immediately, all contributors stop pushing changes to Gerrit. Instead contributors can open their changes as pull requests using the Hyperledger Fabric repository in Github https://github.com/hyperledger/fabric. We have already configured CI to run against new pull requests using Azure Pipelines. This will allow the maintainers time merge as many Gerrit CR's as they can before the cutover.
Any changes that don't make it in before the Friday cutover will be abandoned and contributors will need to reopen them in GitHub. If you feel it's unlikely your change will make it in by Friday morning, we ask that you move it to GitHub now, and close your CR so maintainers can focus on changes that will get merged in the next day.
We will be publishing updated documentation about best practices, but in the meantime a few reminders about GitHub contributions:
With this migration, Hyperledger will have migrated all of its development repositories off of Gerrit and Jenkins. Contributions are welcome to any of the Hyperledger projects through GitHub moving forward. It is our hope that by adopting this industry standard we can lower the barrier of entry for new contributors and attract even more of the community to participate in contributing.
As always, thank you for your contributions!
