Gitea looks great!  My only wish is the search bar would work for the
project names (octavia and openstack/octavia don't seem to work).

Are we planning to make this transition after the Stein release is
out? I am slightly worried about making git changes right at the end
of the release where project teams are doing the final push to get the
release out.
