If you are interested in this, you can read our research on the wiki

I’m excited for this. I think my main concerns have already been raised
by others, but I’ll raise them as a +1:
 - Dependencies between issues (the workaround of listing them all in a
comment isn’t very satisfying, but will do in the interim if we are
sure a proper solution is coming)
 - First-class support for a fast-forward merge workflow, including not
losing comments when doing a force-push to an MR
 - Not breaking any old links when migrating cgit/Bugzilla
bugs/Bugzilla attachments

With those concerns in mind, I’m enthusiastic for gitlab.

I would also be supportive of a solution using Phabricator+cgit. Phab
for task management and patch review, since its task management is more
powerful than gitlab’s, and its patch review workflow doesn’t have the
problems of gitlab’s branch-and-merge approach (its inter-diff reviews
are great). cgit for viewing the repositories, as normal.
