You need an account if you want to write a new bug report ("issue") in
Gitlab, even for public projects. No problem for Emacs developers, they
will have an account on Emacs' Gitlab stanza. But we will miss bug
reports from Emacs users, which usually have no account there.

I, for example, don't write bug reports for other projects if it
requires me to create an account first.

Best regards, Michael.
