I think we could have LDAP, but I'm in favor of less complexcity for
a small number of developers (currently less than 100 gitolite accounts).

Even if we had an onboarding guide, I think people would continue asking
questions how they can contribute to some of our projects.

Personally I'm no fan of Gitlab, but out of all the integrated options
it seems what most people today are already familiar with.
It's somewhat similar to our move to git. I don't like git, but people
just know it (learn it in university, in other projects, etc).
It could lower the bar for contributing to gnunet, though we still need
to write a guide on how to contribute to apply our current setup and
policies to a solution like Gitlab.
Concluding with a real-world example: Last year one of the people I study
with got curious about gnunet. He looked into out cgit, got confused
how "this Github" does not scale in resolution, it's hard to read, how
to clone the repository, etc.
So after years of being used to minimal solutions, maybe the world
has moved on and things like Gitlab are expected, people are used to due
work by SourceForge, Github, Gitlab, etc.

Not a fan, but I'm not oppossed to any potential changes.
