Works for me. We'll try it out for a few contributions (so Eli and
others can get a feel for it), then make it the recommended way to
submit patches.

If that works well, we can consider using it for bug tracking as well.

Eli and John, I'm happy to wait for a decision as long as someone is
making it eventually. I think the Emacs maintainers are the right people
to communicate the decision back to the developers.

Stefan brought up Kallithea https://kallithea-scm.org/ as an alternative
to Gitlab. It's much less mature but GPLv3. We can try both side by side.
