One thing that I must point out is that having something like gitlab, doesn't
preclude us from receiving patches on the mail lists. I recall setting up a
gitlab hook that would create a merge request when some patch arrived on some
email. Also, gitlab, and most of these tools, have API's. Hacking something
should be trivial.
