couple other things I faced when I touched gitlab. How is the test
instance different from the one GNOME is maybe going to use? Though I
do not see basic things even in interface, thus maybe
doesn't matter.

Let's start with easy things:

a) See the second comment of
   It shows like three lines of text (one line, then empty line, then
   third line). When you edit that comment you'll see I made it
   several lines, not only three - the interface is ignoring my
   Enter-s. Am I supposed to use some crazy tag when I want to divide
   paragraphs and/or write simple lines?

b) How do I reply to a comment? I really do not see it (call it
   usability issue, because this is quite unintuitive comparing to
   bugzilla, where I see beside each comment a [reply] link which
   does fancy things and saves me time). Oh, I've received an answer
   from the upstream, there's a keyboard shortcut for it, which
   involves selection on the page. I really cannot get such things
   when opening the interface (not the manual).

c) my current work flow with bugzilla involves having opened *one* tab
   in the browser with a search which contains a list of bugs changed
   since some date for four different products. I refresh it in the
   morning to see newly added bugs and eventually react to them (I
   know, that's a silly idea to take care of newly added bugs where
   reporters are active the most). How do I do the same in
   gitlab, while: 1) the space will not be wasted, because I dislike
   scrolling when it's unnecessary (and here it is); 2) it will not
   be four different tabs in the browser?

d) I cannot set labels on my test project for some reason. They are
   probably good for searching, I don't know, but trying "/label ~xxx"
   in the comment just doesn't do anything (is that the right and only
   way to set label on an issue by commenting with a code-like tags?).
   I opened an issue in (see my previous mail in this
   thread), maybe I do not have permission for it, in my own project?
   The test instance also doesn't auto-complete any label, which may
   or may not be related (per-project labels disabled/impossible?).

I know you can easily RTFM me, but do you know what? I didn't read any
single word of the bugzilla manual and I've been able to work with it
with no problem. Weird, I know. While there is expected some
difference, I think I should not be hunting for basic usage hints.
