yep but that is unhelpful.
if any external project that work with openstack want to become part of openstack under the foundatiosn governace it is
nolonger external.

so if gophercloud was to become part of openstack it would not be external and if it wanted to you github pull requests
for it workflow it woudl be deviating form the other openstack projects.

external project that are not part of openstack governacne can use any tooling they like.

if we start allowing arbiatry internal and external project to use gerrit or github workflows of worse both concurrently
we will start getting request to supprot that for other proejct like nova neutron ectra. i woudl see that as damaging
to the exsting colaberator based and something to be avoided if we can.

im not really sure what gophercloud want to achive by being part of openstack without adopting the openstack
ways of doing things that they cant acive by bing a nice go sdk for openstack on there own with the well wishes
and or support of the openstack comunity.

the 4 opens are a core part of the culture of openstack
simiarly the ways of workign with irc/gerrit/zuul/ptgs are also a part of the openstack way.

i am wondering why gophercloud want to actully becoem an offial proejct if they dont want to adopt the open developement workflow (note i did not say
model) that openstack uses?
