ya i normally set it up against either github or https://opendev.org/openstack/nova
the review.o.o is much larger and take up way more space on disk so i normally avoid
it but i think i origianly create this repo usign gertty for reviews.

this was on my local laptop and i normally only use that repo for doing quick fixes.
