I think GitLab is the better match in the current situation for the
following reasons:
1) It provides a complete forge platform. This allows to replace all
three tools that we currently use to host & browse the source code,
keep track of bug reports, and review code.
2) is hosted and you only need a single account. If you want
to it's possible to log in with Google or GitHub (and others), but you
can also just have a plain account with username and password.

I acknowledge that Gerrit might provide a better review experience for
large graphs of commits. However I think that the integration into a
single tool outweighs that advantage.
