Re: Pilot GitLab program

Please, let's stop this fetish about non-ff merges.

If you like non-ff merges and linear history it's entirely up to your
taste. Nothing "gets confused" about merge commits, and if your
tooling gets confused then I strongly urge you to get better tools —
which is the whole point of switching to GitLab.

Ostensibly, the whole GitHub userbase gets along with it just fine,
and that is larger than the GNOME contributors base by many, many
factors of ten.

Let's not confuse a personal maintainer preference with a technical difficulty.

Cool. I would just suggest making sure that your interns are careful not to
push a non-ff merge (i.e. not to use merge requests), since that will
confuse nautilus's git history until the end of time. A server hook to block
this would be useful, since I expect the number of projects that want linear
history is much higher than the number of projects that want to allow merge
