This gets back to the "selective/conditional mirroring" challenge
though: Gerrit's replication plugin at best will let us manually
list repositories to replicate by name or name regex, but
maintaining this would be nontrivial (I suppose we could build a 1k+
line whitelist from deliverables registered in governance, though
we wouldn't get replication for new repos instantly as that would
have to wait for a Gerrit service restart and I'd be worried about
Gerrit sanely handling such a long config file). It _would_ be
possible to write some alternative daemon to monitor Gerrit activity
and pull+push new commits to the mirror, but that's not something I
personally have the bandwidth to write nor would I expect other
Infra team members to prioritize something like that.
