Re: Proposal to deploy GitLab on

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.

I honestly don't understand what the fuss is all about. This
"difference" already exists.

Either you have a Git account on, in which case:
congrats, you can already push to a branch on GitLab without requiring
a forked repo; or you don't have it, in which case, *right now* you
need to create a separate public repo on some other hosting, or you
need to create a patch from a local clone and attach it somewhere.

With GitLab, on the other hand, in either cases you'll have a forked
repo on the *same* infrastructure.
