It has been a few months since we moved to GitLab. Apart of spurious

generally good. I would like to gather some general feeling about it.
Things that really made a constant impact to you and your work, both
bad or good. Feel free to provide feedback about the transition or
the administration of GitLab instance too. Free form.

Please keep the mail chain one way from you towards the world, so we
don't get trapped on specifics, we can address stuff raised here
individually out of list. Personally, I'll ping you on IRC or so if I
can do something to help.

Of course, feel free to msg me directly on IRC/email too.

My main problem is/was that contributing by pushing a branch is super-
easy, but you can't contribute by pushing a branch if you're not
allowed to push a branch. So this isn't a problem when you're in
@GNOME, and the project is as well, but I've not bothered pushing small
fixes to non-GNOME group modules.

Per-commit reviews are absolutely head-against-the-desk because the UI
is really bad, and the diff tool is sluggish. I miss splinter if I have
more than one commit to review.

All-in-all, it's still a better, and known, workflow for people who
didn't want to, or couldn't learn about git-bz, and having a CI
available is awesome. Don't even need to spend a second reviewing
patches that don't build ;)

Good job :)
