Re: Proposal to deploy GitLab on

Hey Felipe,

What is that you are no fan of in the merge request workflow? Would a command line application thay works similarly to git bz fox these issues?

Regarding useless forks, why is that a problem? (Definitely something to take care on our infra though if it grows too big)

+1: I am supportive of the initiative.

After catching up with the discussion, my personal pros and cons are:

- reviewing patches is significantly clearer in gitlab
- code browsing is better than cgit
- gitlab snippets introduce a bit more flexibility than pastebin
- easy to publish new repositories with toy/new projects

- not a big fan of the merge-request workflow
- we will have a bunch of useless forks across the users' accounts

In terms of issue/bug tracking, I am more concern about the migration
itself. I would initially use gitlab to replace cgit and pastebin, and
keep bugzilla as the bug tracker for a little while (not introducing
new components/modules on bugzilla anymore, pointing at gitlab).

One common thing I do with git-bz is interactively applying patches.
Is there a clear 101 workflow for this kind of review with gitlab?
