Re: User account for migrating Bugzilla issues to GitLab

Amazing job Philip, those examples look really good with the review of the patches included.

Agree with Emmanuelle, seems Alberto won't have much time for the time being so let's move it to our instance if Alberto agrees. You can create a repo on your own namespace with those changes and I will move it to /GNOME.

Thanks, Philip: this is much appreciated.

Since Alberto won't likely have time to work on this for a while, and
since this code should live in GNOME's own GitLab instance, how about
we create a new repository there?
