It's unclear what being non-mediawiki specific has to do with picking github? We have plenty of non-MediaWiki specific code on Gerrit.
More generally, it's extremely helpful that you (and others) document the reasons for picking a proprietary service over the free, privacy-friendly one we're investing resources in supporting so we can make improvements as necessary. Thanks!
Most of the time I'm mostly unoppionated and am all for gerrit, especially when the target audience of the software is users that are (or should be) already used to using gerrit.
But for softwares that are very generic and intended to be used widely in larger non Wikimedia/Mediawiki tech communities, folks are not used to gerrit. I don't want to force people to figure out how to create gerrit accounts and create review patches to accept changes from people outside of WMF.
KafkaSSE is a generic library. The EventStreams service codebase (for which KafkaSSE was developed) is in gerrit.
Are you likely to get many contributors? I've seen this argument many times, and many of these repos receive little to no external commits.
It seems to be me it'd be more worthwhile if someone fixed/maintained the github -> gerrit bot, else just spending time on T37497: Implement a way to bring GitHub pull requests into gerrit more generally
