Prolog is the extension mechanism Gerrit has settled on. If the goal
is to have Gerrit enforce voting permissions on changes based on
which files are modified in a particular change, it looks like the
only current likely solution (well that or contributing a different
solution upstream to Gerrit, if they can be convinced it's a
worthwhile use case).

I would definitely like to see Boris or one of the Rally devs
install a local Gerrit and test out the file-based vote filtering
mechanism proposed, but first I think it's a worthwhile exercise to
get the Rally community to manually follow the rules Boris is
talking about and work out any obvious kinks/corner cases before we
spend time worrying about automating them.

It's in progress... Always in progress, but as with many of our
horizontal support projects there's a tragedy of the commons at
