Oh sure, I think we’re in complete agreement there :)

And to say something about the main topic of the thread (discussion
about use of GitLab for Emacs development), as myself and a few others
previously mentioned, Sourcehut [0] is a serious contender that could be
more readily suitable for Emacs development than GitLab, because of its
email-centric workflows and the optional and minimal web interface for
those that want it (rather than trying to shoehorn email integration on
top of a heavy web app as an afterthought, as in the case of GitLab).
But I shall not derail the focus of this thread’s discussion about
GitLab and its merits and features, and the desired features it still
lacks; especially since Sourcehut still has to mature a bit more to be a
considered as a replacement for all of Savannah or GitLab as proposed.
Regardless, I think Sourcehut is a promising forge to keep an eye on,
with workflows compatible with our existing ones.  I’ll likely bring it
up later when this discussion about GitLab gets somewhere (e.g. when we
get to a prioritized list of features desired by the “main” Emacs devs,
as well as by new/potential contributors).
