As i said there is value in uniformity of the tooling, I like to think we're 
all reasonable people and understand that if the majority thinks it's a better 
tool, it makes sense to move to that tool. That's what happened with git.

And if after evaluating it, it doesn't make sense, we don't. That's what 
happened with gitlab.

Now to me it seems that you're basically saying "you" do what you want, i'll 
keep using "my" stuff. Which i find sad since it's creating artificial 
barriers between "you" and "my" :/

It also puts the discussion about a possible switch to gerrit in a weird 
situaion since we either all switch and have uniformity or we don't and then 
we end up with reviewborad+gerrit :/

Maybe you could start a thread explaining why gerrit is better than 
reviewboard nd why should we switch to it?
