(Removing PIM from the list, because I don't see this as a PIM matter.)

That was the impression which I got from the #kde-devel IRC channel and the 
kde-core-devel ML right after that frameworks BoF during Akademy. When 
re-reading the threads and the IRC logs today, I no longer have the 
impression that there was a clear, absolute and strict "no", but there was 
nonetheless IMHO quite a strong resistance to using something "as horrific 
as Gerrit". That might explain why I think that there will be a subset of 
people who won't be fine with any change, and because I respect their 
opinion, I don't want to force such a change upon them.

So, basically, from my point of view -- the tools are here, the CI is done. 
That CI bits in particular make the workflow much more appealing to me. Now 
it's up to the KDE developers to come to a decision whether they want that 
or not.
