Just to be sure, I don't think this means that the project must move
to Oracle repos, does it?

Of course, Oracle repos means it's easier to check that all
contributors pushing have signed the OCA, but that's about it, the
code may still be physically somewhere else, the only important point
is that the OCA is signed I think.

Can you explain?
