If people find this idea interesting, I would like to invite some of the Mercurial devs and OpenStack infrastructure folks (i.e. Zuul devs) to the language summit (leaving it up to them if they stay for the whole day, or just this part). I believe we already have enough Reitveld, Roundup and Buildbot experience amongst the core development team to assess the feasibility of the idea from that side of things.
I find the idea interesting and plan to watch the linked video and read up on this. Is it an all or nothing thing (i.e. either all devs operate using the new Zull-based method or no one does)?
All-or-nothing - with merge gating, *only* Zuul commits to the main branches/clone (so we'd also be in for some interesting discussions with the release managers and installer buiders - we may need to provide them with the ability to override the normal gating process).
The underlying philosophy of the approach is reflected in the fact that OpenStack doesn't have core committers or even core developers - they have core reviewers instead.
