Hi there,

No strong opinion here about GitLab, just a comment below...

I have seen this concern pop several times in this thread. Does GitLab
strictly require that a merge request is always started from a fork?

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.

Sure, but this creates a distinction between maintainers and other
contributors, as I think Bastien mentioned before.
