Another issue we haven't discussed yet is commit permissions. Right
now, everyone can commit anything to every repository, but with GitLab
we'll probably eventually want something more fine-grained where
*active* maintainers have more control over who is allowed to commit.
uhh, why? I think the lack of fine grained ACLs is an extremely useful feature of our current setup. Are you concerned we might grow abusers at some point?


Some maintainers want this, and I think that will be fine in the future. I don't really care much either way, because I've never seen any intentional abuse, and if someone commits something wrong to one of my projects I can simply revert it... which is very rare. But GitLab makes it easy to lock down permissions, and I hope we don't do that right away, when our build system is still very fragile and waiting for maintainers to approve build fixes is undesirable.
