Why C (and not, say, Java or Go) ? Is it some kind of control question
to detect who learned programming before 2005 ?

I think this one is a bit unclear. What is "the repository" ? Your local
git repo ? A branch pushed to Gerrit for review (a "change") ? Or an
actual commit in an actual OpenStack repository ? The latter seems
extremely unlikely (getting one commit fully in on the day you code it).

Maybe add a comment box so that we can control people are actually clear
on the "stated missions". For example, Launchpad (un)stated mission is a
bit overreaching -- task tracking, task coordination, bug tracking,
change tracking and release publication... Most people think it's only
one (or two) of those, and it's usually part of the reason why they
think it does its work badly.
