Excellent. I think most will agree it’s time we implement such changes.

The outcome of this evaluation process is that we are recommending that
GNOME sets up its own GitLab instance, as a replacement for Bugzilla and

This mail mentions Gitlab as the only alternative. I know some people
suggested to consider Phabricator, yet your proposal doesn’t mention
it and by the looks of the wiki pages your research has been focused
around Gitlab. Now I know very little about both Gitlab and
Phabricator so I won’t push or block anything, but I’m a bit worried
that this wasn’t given enough scrutiny. In particular, I saw that
Phabricator has a tool for mockups/design (Pholio [0]) that really
looked like something we’d make good use of. It would allow our
designers to stop using Github, Dropbox, and such non free,
not-on-our-infrastructure tools.

So did you just look at Gitlab and think it’s good enough, or did you
actually consider Phabricator (and maybe other alternatives) and pick
Gitlab as the best fit?
