Thanks a lot! :)

FYI, I'm also for having a separate namespace, just because adding more
than 150 Git repositories at once in /openstack will be a huge mess.

I don't really mind if it's called /openstack-packages or
/openstack-pkg-deb or anything else, as long as we have consistency.

I agree with what you wrote above. The tooling shouldn't be a blocker
for the move to upstream Gerrit. We should decide on the tooling out of
technically sound decisions that fits a given distribution.
