Hosting the project in the OpenDev Collaboratory would mean having
its source code in our review.opendev.org Gerrit service as the
primary reference copy and updating it through change proposals
using a Gerrit workflow. You could replicate code to GitHub as is
done for OpenStack's repositories, but the code copy on GitHub would
merely serve as a read-only mirror.

While the Zuul software does have a GitHub driver and OpenDev
connects their zuul.opendev.org deployment to GitHub in order to
provide advisory testing to dependencies of projects hosted in
OpenDev, the OpenDev sysadmins concluded that gating projects hosted
outside of the OpenDev Collaboratory's Gerrit instance (e.g., on
GitHub) is not something we were able to support sustainably:


This was based on experiences trying to work with the Kata
community, and the "experiment" referenced in that mailing list post
eventually concluded with the removal of remaining Kata project
configuration when https://review.opendev.org/744687 merged
approximately 15 months ago.
