We don't.  I'm just saying that many of them will, if we end up using
GitLab.  And I see no problem with that, exactly like we never ask
them which browser they use to send email to us or look at bug reports
on debbugs.

That was my point, exactly.  Alan seemed to say that we should punish
them, or reject their submissions.

Anyway, this is all very theoretical at this point, since GitLab has
many other problems, which are of much more importance to us than this
