GitLab is super resource consuming. Okay, the more users, the more
resources are used up anywhere, but we are glad when we can switch from
Gitlab to Pagure on our new server.
In resources it won't make much of a difference, but the specs of the
server are far better.

I seem to recall looking into packaging gitlab a while back. I don't
count it as a priority for me. But just as a note, it rarely ever works
out to wait for someone else to take on the job.
I have an almost finished 0ad for months now. No one picks up the
package in the middle which needs to be fixed for 0ad to build. If you
can work on it and maybe need assistance and it can take a long time
anyway, it's a good task to work on, even if it lies around, collects
digital dust and serves as a starting point for someone else :) That's
how rustc came to be, someone did it, left it, someone else did it, left
it, I did it and left it, and 3 or 4 more people worked on it until it
finally was ready.
