No, this works exactly like in Github.

At least with GitHub and Gogs [1] it's possible to create merge
requests from a branch *in the same repository* (I use branches named
“<username>/<feature>” now and then). If everybody who is a
maintainer is going to have push access in the GNOME GitLab instance,
they can just push their branch to repository and create the merge
request from there — without needing to fork the repository into
their user space.


Only new contributors who don't have the permissions yet would need to
create their own forks.
