According to Gitlab Documentation [0] [1], the rebase feature you are
talking about is only available in Gitlab Enterprise Edition, which is
proprietary [2].

The libreboot website [3] explains "what's wrong with Gitlab", I think
it is worth reading.

The Kernel Recipes talk by Greg KH [4] about why the Linux kernel
developers rely on plain text email instead of using "modern"
development tools might be of some interest too. It'll happen in Paris
on September 28 [5].
