[GitLab] Projects moved, general comments, tips of the week, question of the week

Our migration is going faster that I have planned. We reached our second milestone today, the most core-ish platform-ish modules asked for a migration and are now migrated. So allow me to do two claps 👏👏

Projects migrated today

- gtk (no bugs yet)
- glib (no bugs yet)
- gnome-control-center (no bugs yet)
- gnome-settings-daemon (no bugs yet)
* for those without bug migrations yet, consult their respective maintainers for more info on their plans.

General comments for maintainers

For those maintainers that migrated switch the permissions of the master branch to "masters and developers" in "settings → general → repository → protected branches → master", since there is no API for that I cannot do it when migrating, but we want to allow all developers to be able to push to the master branch.

For those that want to migrate, remember to have your doap files updated since only maintainers will be able to change settings in the project.


- Modifying multiple MR and issues at the same time:
In the issues or MR view, click the "edit issues/MR" button on the top right and select the issues/MR you want to batch modify. You can apply labels, close them, subscribe to them, etc.

- Automatically make discussions resolved when the same line is updated: "Settings→General → Merge request settings → Automatically resolve merge request diff discussions when they become outdated". This is something that probably most of you want.

- Show more code context in a review:
In a diff, click the three dots on the corners. Example shown in this pic (with my above-average GIMP skills):

Question of the week

GitLab support issues templates, some text in markdown that will be shown for reporters when creating a new issue. Multiple issues template are supported, reporters can select them in a dropdown. The question is, what issue template should we use for when reporters create an issue?

Ideally we would have a common template and maintainers will tweak it if necessary for their projects. Please comment on the issue your ideas an thoughts, there is currently no proposal.

Enjoy and welcome to 2018.
