Not everybody (I guess almost nobody) is able to host a public
repository where everybody can fetch from. Which is why we want to
provide an infrastructure for public use. The sandbox is an easy way to
do it with Gerrit (out of the box), but maybe other techniques (like
Peter described, a separate repository) would be better suited. But then
again, someone has to "do it".

Or we just use github.org with all the benefits that it provides, but
then it's not in "our hand" (which I don't oppose per se, but we have
also moved from SF.net > Forge in the past ago for a reason).
