If you expect an answer from me, then I don't have enough information
to do that.  I never worked with Gitlab, have only a casual
familiarity with Github, and don't have any clear idea of what would
that mean for the process.  Someoneā„¢ will have to set up a test
repository which can be freely played with, and provide enough
instructions for the relevant frequent ops to allow some first-hand
experience with Gitlab (or whatever).  Only then I will be able to say
something intelligent.

FWIW, most of the time I use up on Emacs-related work is spent
debugging and reviewing patches, not on stuff related to debbugs and
the VCS; the latter take negligible time.  Not sure what that means in
the context of this discussion.
